If the first request was without a key, than your limit today is 300.

comment Provide a “latest” version for apps that want to keep up
Depending on complexity of the app, it is quite possible that breaking changes between minor (and even major) versions would be few and far between. Personally I would use a 1.n approach since minor versions should have very limited breaking changes.

Wasn't me, but I assume it's because the question is "Can we please have?" rather than "Why does mine not work?"

comment Keep getting HTTP 406
On my home network this was caused by my ISP's web acceleration proxy. I found a way to bypass the proxy, but it may be more difficult in a corporate environment.

comment Official Status Site/Page/Banner
Oh definitely not a manual status site. I'm talking about something more automated. I could just write one that pings the API every 30 seconds or so, but it would be nice to have an official status exposed in this site.

comment What happens if an app becomes super popular?
This does not, however, work for a website, which may have only two or three IPs from which to make requests.
