Whenever I try to login using my Github account, I now get the following error:

HTTP GET to returned status code 403: Forbidden Full response body: {message":"API rate limit exceeded for user ID 1721820.","documentation_url

    Hi Antoine,

    Seems that error is pretty self-explained. Maybe you used GitHub API token is some script or build scenario and hit their rate limit? Can you do any GitHub API call (like listing repos with curl and providing API token issued for your account?

    Right now you should be still able to login to AppVeyor with email. Repair your password with and login with email.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hi Ilya,

    The error disappeared. I don't do any Github API calls, though...

    I would recommend to regenerate all personal access tokens to eliminate some forgotten script/process which may be running somewhere using your token ;)
