Interactive @waybackmachine achievement unlocked while manually archiving 4 pages.: HTTP 429 Too Many Requests

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/20

[Wayback/Archive] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers on Twitter: “Interactive @waybackmachine achievement unlocked while manually archiving 4 pages.

The below error took a few hours to recover from. The submitted URLs were indeed already archived when checking if they were.

It was about the URLs in my blog post earlier today: Vanaf 1 juli kost opheffen oude spaarrekening EUR 75, dus wees er snel bij: Beëindig je oude spaarproduct – ING – Sparen.

I really wish had a status page to show system status, as right now you have to guess by pages like below about their status.

You can find the error page at [Archive] (but not all HTTP response codes have pages like this and some respond in a different way like [Archive]

Too Many Requests

In order to protect the Wayback Machine we have limits on different services. Unfortunately you have hit one of those limits. It can be caused by:

  • Being an automatic bot that does not appear to be human
  • A playback page that has an unusual number of components
  • Excessive load on the Wayback machine not related to your activities
  • Saving too many pages in a give time frame
  • The best solution is to wait a few seconds and reload the existing page.

Please feel free to write to us at if you have questions about this. Please include the following information in your email:
