#SOreadytohelp The Bridge Builder


                I am the first user
            to earn at least 30,000
            reputation points each

                 
                    on all three of
                  Stack Overflow,
                 Server Fault and
                     Super User.


         I was also the first user to
surpass 10,000 and 20,000 points each
          on all three of those sites.

... I was hoping that an SE person would repond to my support tag and give an official response regarding changes in throttling.

comment Got a Bad Status Line
@BrockAdams: I had done as you suggested and used Wireshark. There was no backoff message (which my code handles) and there was no HTTP response code (after receiving a bunch of 200s during each run) to handle. I think it's the silent failure that is SE's response when it believes you're being abusive. It hadn't found my pace to be abusive for the previous 16 months so I believe there has been an unannounced change on SE's part. I'll add silent-failure detection so that it waits and tries again. No MCVE will be forthcoming, I'm afraid, since I don't have time to do the "M" part. Sorry. ...

comment Query Statistics for my app responds with “No Requests”
True. "Response" would have been a better word. The other question has a confirmation rather than an answer or response.

comment Query Statistics for my app responds with “No Requests”
That question may be a duplicate, but it's a poor search target and it doesn't have an answer while this one has an answer in the form of a comment.

comment Why do I get a throttle violation after 300 requests while using a key but no access_token?
I had a problem similar to this and it was caused by one query (which I only run once) which was missing the key. Running keyed queries more than 300 times causes an unkeyed query to fail for throttle violation. Fixing the missing key fixed the problem.

@Pureferret: It's on the Don't-Hold-Your-Breath To-Do list. ;-) I want to implement something like this, but time is tight right now.
