We want to serve as many users around the world as possible, but we need to roll it out in a measured and economically sustainable way.
The BigOven API imposes limits on the maximum rate at which requests can be made
of the API server. This throttling exists to ensure a high quality experience for
all consumers by protecting against abuse of the service.
This limit is imposed solely on GET requests, since we feel at this time that other types of requests directly contribute to the growth of the BigOven community. Abuse of this privilege, however, will be reviewed and offending consumers may have their licenses revoked.
What Is The Default Rate?
|Default Rate (Beta)||100 GET Requests / Hour|
