Can't create basic project

Followed all the expected steps but can't add my simple github repo to a project. Error is just an unhelpful "Operation didn't work, contact support". Connected my appveyor account with github, authorized the app, can see my repos listed but error out every time I try to add. All my repos are public and I am the owner for each. Tried adding several times over a period of an hour to make sure it wasnt a connectivity issue.

What can possibly be going wrong here?

    I gave up trying to fix it and made a new account under a different email.
    Worked fine with a new email.

    So I guess its some kind of account config/authorization on AppVeyors end?
