... the nasty app that is checking “vitals+recent-sales” nearly every second is shut down immediately. The traffic is killing our servers and as much as we love the API , the marketplace comes first. Unless these requests die down, the API will be shut off at 16:30 AEST .

Just found an app that is even worse, checking for “recent-sales+statement+account+earnings-and-sales-by-month”. Please fix your code to check once per minute, not ten times per second.

you should set a limit like twitter…maybe 100 requests per hour or so…that will force developers to code their apps properly.

Does anyone really need an update once a minute even? Once an hour seems more reasonable.

ok, this its strange, yesterday a friend seen me check the upload place of my item just ask me if there’s not some app that can do that for me. Now I found that there is one. Ok I will not use it, but that’s very strange :D

You should make this limit by the way of the server, do not really on common sense, that’s something that do not exist these days.

Bad developers * smack * The firefox side bar I am making is hardcoded to check every half hour, I am not giving users the option to change this time limit for this very reason.
