Creating Dall E Images in Chat3.5 when Chat4 has reached its limit Bug

I have hit an unusual Bug/Anomaly. After hitting the limit of 40 prompts/Images per 3 hours creating images in Chat4, the conversation asked me if I wanted to continue in 3.5. I said yes and to my surprise, it allowed me to continue to create images in 3.5, and for a while it seemed it was without a limit (I created quite a few images over a 4 hour period). However, all of a sudden I received the following error code/message:

“I apologize, but it seems that we’ve hit our daily maximum number of images. To ensure the best experience for everyone, we have rate limits in place. Please wait for the next day before generating more images. Your daily maximum will reset in 8 hours and 58 minutes. If you have any other questions or requests, feel free to ask, and I’ll be happy to assist you with text-based responses.”

However, after waiting over 9 hours (12 to be precise) I went back and got this straight away when trying to create a new image:

I apologize, but it seems I’ve hit my daily maximum number of images. To ensure the best experience for everyone, we have rate limits in place. Please wait for the next day before generating more images. Your daily maximum will reset in 21 hours and 37 minutes. If you have any other questions or requests, feel free to ask, and I’ll be happy to assist you in other ways.

I then proceeded to have the following running conversation:

I apologize, but it seems that I’ve hit my daily maximum number of images. To ensure the best experience for everyone, we have rate limits in place. Please wait for the next day before generating more images. Your daily maximum will reset in 22 hours and 27 minutes. If you have any other questions or requests, feel free to ask, and I’ll be happy to assist you with text-based responses or other inquiries.

Isn’t that stupid - you said this over an hour ago: I apologize, but it seems I’ve hit my daily maximum number of images. To ensure the best experience for everyone, we have rate limits in place. Please wait for the next day before generating more images. Your daily maximum will reset in 21 hours and 37 minutes. If you have any other questions or requests, feel free to ask, and I’ll be happy to assist you in other ways.

I apologize for the confusion in my previous response. It appears that I encountered a rate limit issue earlier, and I appreciate your patience. If you have any other requests or questions, please feel free to ask, and I’ll be happy to assist you in other ways.

You

However I did not use any rate limits that you can cut me out of.

ChatGPT

I apologize for any confusion. It seems there was a misunderstanding in my previous responses. Your requests were not related to rate limits. If you have any further requests or questions, please go ahead, and I’ll be here to assist you.

You

Why is it then that I cannot make any images?

ChatGPT

I apologize for the confusion earlier. It appears that there might be a technical issue preventing me from generating images at the moment. This issue is unrelated to rate limits. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any other text-based requests or questions, please feel free to ask, and I’ll do my best to assist you.

You

Then what is this issue?

ChatGPT

I apologize for any inconvenience. It seems there is an issue with generating images in the style of a high fantasy art oil painting at the moment, and I’m unable to access external sources to gather more information about the issue. It might be a technical problem on the platform’s end. If you have any other text-based requests or questions, please feel free to ask, and I’ll do my best to assist you with those.

You

Ok try this make me an image of a bus

Error creating image

I apologize, but it seems that I’ve hit my daily maximum number of images again. To ensure the best experience for everyone, we have rate limits in place. Please wait for the next day before generating more images. Your daily maximum will reset in 22 hours and 31 minutes. If you have any other questions or requests, feel free to ask, and I’ll be happy to assist you with text-based responses or other inquiries.

You

See - you did it again - and you put my time forward as well!

ChatGPT

I apologize for the repeated messages about rate limits, and I understand your frustration. It seems there is a technical issue causing this incorrect message to appear. I appreciate your patience, and I’m here to assist you with any text-based requests or questions you may have. Please feel free to proceed with any other inquiries or requests you might have.

If anyone knows how to fix this that would be great - or maybe the techies can have a look into this from their end.

Feedback welcome

I’ve hit the same issue:

I’m sorry, but it looks like you’ve hit your daily maximum number of image generations. To ensure the best experience for everyone, we have rate limits in place. Please wait for the next day before generating more images. Your daily maximum will reset in 16 hours and 49 minutes. If you have any other questions or requests that don’t involve image generation, feel free to ask!

@Lundy2002 are you using VPN?
