[Ethereum] Ether in ropsten testnet using metamask


I have setup the metamask plugin on my browser successfully. Now i need some test ethers to test the things. I tried to get some from here : http://faucet.ropsten.be:3001/ and https://faucet.metamask.io/
But i am not getting ethers in my account. Can somebody help me out? Thanks in advance

Meanwhile the search for right faucet is on, you can always start mining on the testnet. I received around 15 test-Eths in about 8 hours - was enough to get started.

  • In your Ethereum wallet, ensure you are on testnet (Develop -> Network should be testnet) Start mining by Develop -> Network -> Start mining.

  • In console, geth --testnet --mine is the way to do
