New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on June 27, 2023) follows:

For some weeks now, Janitor AI has become one of the most popular options in the NSFW-friendly chatbot segment. Several users tired of the Character AI restrictions or filters have given it a try.

That said, it appears that Janitor AI website is currently down, not working or loading, preventing numerous users from accessing the service.

Janitor AI down, not working or loading

Multiple recent reports indicate that the Janitor AI platform is unavailable. The outage has already lasted at least 30 minutes at the time of writing this story.


is the site down for anyone else?

i’m unsure if they’re doing maintenance or something, but it’s been like this for the past hour 😞 nothing will load / whenever i refresh nothing happens.

is the site down?

cuz whenever i try to open chats it says that it can’t view it and that the bot has either been deleted or privated

According to a user, the server crash could have been caused by many people accessing at the same time through Pawan reverse proxy.

Nope I think it has something to do with the massive amounts of people that rushed in at the same time because the pawan reverse proxy finally started working after a day

For those who don’t know, a reverse proxy allows free use of conversational AI services that are paid. So, the availability of these proxies causes a potential massive and sudden arrival of users.

There is still no official word from the Janitor AI team on this situation. So, it is not yet known when the AI-chatbots will be available again.

We will be monitoring the situation to update this story as events unfold.
