We have implemented a new rate limit of 1 request per second.

Any user going quicker than this will be temp banned for a minute.

We've had to do this to stop the web server being overloaded. Getting over 10 million hits a day currently. Hopefully this will help spread out the load.

Are there additional limits for free accounts?

I ask because I was getting responses regularly (spread apart a few minutes each request) for an app I'm developing, but all of a sudden it stopped. No response at all. Like I'm banned/blocked.

I just signed up for as a patreon supporter hoping that it will be resolved once I get/use an API key, but I wanted to see i there was any other limits/blocks that need to be resolved.

Checking back in.

Everything seems fine with the API key.

I recall that rapidapi had a limit of 100 calls a day or something like that for free accounts, so I'm just going to assume that's the limit I hit.
