Within the last week mine along with multiple other people have lost the ability to do profile lookups via Mojangs API. Spoiler: Discovering The Issue I first noticed the issue about two days ago when a piece of software (Skin Restorer) wasn’t able to do profile look ups due a 429 Too Many Requests error. The next day, I noticed it still wasn’t fixed and though it may have been an issue with the software, but it wasn’t the only thing not working. I had also lost the ability to display new skins on NPC’s (Citizens) and to display skins on skulls (using essentials /skull <player>). I decided to turn off everything in the server, the only thing left running was FTP, SSH and the OS. There was nothing trying to resolve profiles from Mojang. After an hour and half I decided to try do a profile lookup from putty (curl https://api.mojang.com/users/profiles/minecraft/Chalkie) and it still stated I was rate limited. As a side note, I have the same setup on my local test server and profile lookup work correctly. So I don’t believe it’s a problem with the plugins, spigot or bungeecord. I have been able to ‘fix’ this for the Skin Restorer software by using a third party API instead of api.mojang.com for profile lookups but it doesn’t fix it for anything else. I am still able to access other parts of Mojang. Example: Citizen NPC's created prior to this issue that already have a their UUID, Skin Signatures and Textures resolved work fine and my Chest GUI that displays head textures via textures.minecraft.net also works. I am also able to still use curl sessionserver.mojang.com/session/minecraft/profile/2b5bf511afc74ee395d64ea4ce34bbe0. I am not the only one running into this issue, there are a magnitude of reports in the Skin Restorer discord (however most seem to think the issue is just with SR atm) and some have started to pop up on the Citizens Issues. For anyone experience this issue are you; Hosting via OVH or SYS or your dedicated server is on either of those two. (Is it in NA?) Able to replicate the issue using curl https://api.mojang.com/users/profiles/minecraft/notch via Putty. What OS are you using. Tried generating a new (a name you haven't used before) skull with the /skull <player> command and it not worked. Edit: More information has been posted about this on /r/admincraft thanks to RedZephon. Edit:2 The almighty Dinnerbones has graced these forums with his presence. The issue was a mistake and has been fixed.
