Mention m:User-Agent policy?[edit]

I think this page should mention Wikimedia's m:User-Agent policy and the general principle of using an informative, useful User-Agent in scripts and tools. Thoughts? --MZMcBride (talk) 22:27, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Not really, We should keep MW documentation to be MW specific where possible, not chucking in WMF stuff as well, Although a small note along the lines of "Other communities such as WMF may have access/usage restrictions etc etc etc, For a example of WMF's look at meta: etc etc" wouldn't be too bad. But the bit about informative user-agents for sure. Peachey88 (talk) 23:29, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

New Wikimedia request limits[edit]

We should probably mention the new limits added in gerrit:241643 on this page, they are Wikimedia specific though. Legoktm (talk) 10:21, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Wasn't that reverted? "50/s, burst of 250" is very low for our standards, I would be very surprised to hear there is a real need for it. Nemo 10:26, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I don't think gerrit:241643 has been reverted. A revert changeset was submitted in gerrit:252385, but that changeset has not been merged and deployed, as far as I can tell.
Assuming "50/s" means 50 requests per second, that seems quite fast. --MZMcBride (talk) 14:14, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I got request limit after 40 update/POST requests in 3 minute window on wikidata.org :( --Ceefour (talk) 15:59, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

This page doesn't mention anything about the limits[edit]

Why is this page like a general "What not to do" advisory article? Can we have some data on what are the different kinds of limits and how to configure them for a wiki? --Nischayn22 (talk) 03:44, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
