Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I was just playing around with the API locally and got throttled for the questions and answers methods (the only two I was using).

Anyway, I noticed there’s a small typo in the error message that’s returned:

{"error_id":502,"error_name":"throttle_violation","error_message":"too many requests from this IP, more requests availabe in 61920 seconds"}

“availabe” should probably be “available”.

P.S. I was very surprised to get banned from using those two methods for over 18 hours, considering I was just testing some stuff locally. I must be a horrible coder :)

Yeah, it would be nice for developers to have a special page somewhere where we can reset the timeout when we accidentally trigger it. – Nathan Osman Mar 27 '12 at 17:58

@GeorgeEdison That would be nice, indeed! Should I post a new topic with a feature request? (This one is just about the typo.) – Mathias Bynens Mar 27 '12 at 18:00
    
Certainly - go right ahead. – Nathan Osman Mar 27 '12 at 18:12
