You've reached the current usage cap for GPT-4. You can continue with the default model now, or try again after xx:xx AM/PM

I would like to highlight several concerns and issues I have encountered while using the GPT-4 service. The main unacceptable thing is the Cap Limitation which is broken so:

  1. Message Cap Limitation: The foremost issue I have encountered is the imposition of a message cap, allowing me to send only a limited number of messages before reaching my cap. This limitation becomes especially problematic when the cap is reached after less than 10 messages, as opposed to the expected allowance of 40 messages per 3 hours. This constraint severely restricts the depth and continuity of conversations, hindering the usability of the service.

  2. Conversation History Discrepancies: Additionally, I have observed discrepancies in the conversation history. Specifically, old conversations are appearing as if they transpired on the current day. This misrepresentation of chronological data results in a disorganized and confusing conversation history, making it challenging to review and reference past interactions accurately.

  3. Reduced Productivity in Problem Solving: The GPT-4 service often refrains from directly providing solutions to problems or exercises but instead offers explanations on how to solve them. While explanations can be valuable, there are instances where immediate problem resolution is essential. This approach can be seen as unproductive and time-consuming, particularly when users seek efficient solutions.

  4. Performance Degradation: Users, including myself, have experienced a noticeable slowdown in the service’s performance. This degradation in speed affects the overall user experience and could be detrimental to productivity.

  5. Subscription Management: OpenAI has temporarily disabled new plus subscriptions, citing high usage. While I understand the need to manage server loads, it raises questions about the scalability and resource allocation for the service. I believe that more subscriptions should ideally lead to increased resources (clusters), resulting in enhanced performance. This, in turn, should align with a commitment to customer satisfaction.



I used GPT-4 about five times today and got the usage cap limit.

It happens really quickly. Quite frustrating.

+1 for me today. Using two chat within one hour and got the cap limit. Very frustrating with a GPT-4 Plus account!

Agreed; apparently, failed responses are counted as well.
In my personal opinion, those should be exempted, especially when the price for a plus account is already quite steep!

bugün chatgbt4 ü bir kere kullanmak istedim ve sınıra ulaştınız dedi. günde 50den fazla soru soran kişiler böyle bir sorunla karşılaşmazken ben nasıl karşılaşıyorum

i got it and i dont even use gtp 4 and im right in the middle of a big project

I just got this message, and I am not even using 4??? I am using the free tier.


I am receiving the following error when using GPT-3.5

I am not a GPT-4 user and I do not have the plus version.


I am in the same boat. Hoping it’s just a temporary outage. I tried creating a new account and it gives me the same message. :frowning:

I’m guessing it’s a temporary bug or something? Cause I got this message using the free version too

Hey, so I have a problem, I keep dealing with the message capacity for GPT-4, I DON’T USE GPT-4 I USE GPT-3.5!!! Why is this happening???

For some reason, it says I pass the usual limit cap For gpt4 Even though I don’t use that version

One day i start GPT 3.5 like usual, but every time i try to write anything i get error message about GPT 4 cap. The “use default mode” button doesn’t work, i just get the same error message again. What should i do?

I am also facing this issue but not sure how long will it take to get resolved.

EStou usando a versão 3.5 e esta aparecendo You’ve reached the current usage cap for GPT-4, mas eu nem estou usando esse 4 e nem quero.

eu fecho, abro de novo outro chat e nada

Looks like there is a bug… we are all having the same issue as free users. Darn.


Am I Paying $20 monthly to be limited? Is this an error or it’s part of the membership? this wasn’t in the enrollment.
