Disroot SearX Instance not working

So this problem has been going on for a few days now. I wanted to report this sooner but I didn’t know of a place to post these issues. The disroot statistics page says that SearX is running all good and fine. But, a lot of the search engines don’t work. I wanted to ask, is there an issue board or something to contact the maintainers?

Hi,
you can creatre issues on our git page at: https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/Disroot-Project/issues

But yeah the problem with searx and some engines is that sometimes due to high load of queries sometimes search engines block our instanance thinking it’s spamming. Usually it’s temporary. It’s one of the drawbacks of being a meta-search using other search engines.

Thats said, we did notice our instance being blocked more often lately (we are all using it as our primary way to search web too), so we need to look into whether the activity is not by abusers, and if it’s the case, mitigate that somehow.
