Unable to papertrade a strategy

I am not able to papertrade a strategy. "live trade" button is enabled, but I am not allowed to click on "paper trade on Quantopian".
I have never had this issue on Quantopian. I wonder if there's a limit in the amount of strategy I can paper-trade at the same time. Currently I have 15 strategies I am already testing, but I am not able to add the 16th. Thanks.

I've had this problem as well, they are updating the backtester at the moment so it may just be a glitch?

Hello again,

I just wanted to let you know that we have restored paper trading functionality.

Thanks again for reporting this issue.

I tried and I confirm it was working as expected. Thank you very much for the quick path.
