Rinkeby faucet not working?

I’ve tried using the rinkeby faucet @ https://faucet.rinkeby.io/. It says successfully given ether, but when I try to deploy contracts, it gives an error of insufficient funds. If I check my etherscan @ https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/address/0xD5dF99c820E12B29b3654B66fA0De8eB9Fe21794 , I can see that I have a balance of 0. Not sure if this is an issue of demand or something, but is it possible someone can send me some test ether?

So have you done following the requirements?

  • To request funds via Twitter, make a tweet with your Ethereum address pasted into the contents (surrounding text doesn’t matter).
    Copy-paste the tweets URL into the above input box and fire away!

  • To request funds via Facebook, publish a new public post with your Ethereum address embedded into the content (surrounding text doesn’t matter).
    Copy-paste the posts URL into the above input box and fire away!

Yeah sorry, I got it, I think there was too much demand or something, but I can’t delete the post.

can someone send me some rinkeby eth? lol

need it for development thank you homies


I can see my validated address on https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ but the balance shows 0 in metamask.
Etherscan also shows no transactions in the address.

Hello, this site not working -> Official Rinkeby | https://faucet.rinkeby.io
Does anyone know why?

Same here, and I'm surprised it has been this long. Is there a team maintaining Rinkeby?

I thought it worked, but afterall my balance remains unchanged ...

Does Rinkeby still not working? that seems to.
