I am working on a bot [https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1140600.msg12032739#msg12032739] which will access data from this forum, so what is the access limit so that the bot ip does not gets banned?

great to hear youre implementing my idea; afaik there isnt a limit on accessing the forum, bit-x's bot likely processes many requests a day ad cycles through posts of the UID entered, and it doesnt have any problem in doing so; the only lmit would be posting and pming people.

There should be a limitation, not sure about the exact details but if you fetch a lot of data in lets say.. a minute, you might get blocked unless you are whitelisted because the server may get the connection labeled as "DDoS"

Yes. Make sure it doesn't access the forum more than once per second on average, though.

The maximum allowed bot request frequency is 1 request per second. Those IPs are now accessing pages at an average of 2.5 requests per second combined. If you continue exceeding the allowed request limit, we will continue banning your IPs.

The rules are the same as for humans. But keep in mind:
- No one is allowed to access the site more often than once per second on average. (Somewhat higher burst accesses are OK.)
- Every post must be on-topic. Any bot response to a topic is almost certainly off-topic. Changetip's behavior of responding to user commands publicly would not be allowed, for example.
- If someone complains about an unsolicited PM you send them, then you're probably going to be banned.

Yes, the 1 second request per hour is correct. Unfortunately sometimes the forum doesnt work even when you follow that restriction. Theymos claims thats because of the ddos protection he is using.

The bot i finally could offer for download today is using 1 request per 2 seconds to be fully save, i believe.

Correct, I just took a look through the source code and it does indeed only request a page every two seconds, the code has some comments regarding the access limit on the forum as well:

>Min allowed delay between access for bitcointalk.com is 1 second,but it is set at 2 seconds at line 99 for this script.
