Webthumb API Usage

Ok so one this to remember when using API is don’t use it stupidly.

So for some reason i got a couple users who are making 20 requests to webthumb a second.

This hurts performance for everyone and doesn’t get you results any faster.

No matter how often you poll webthumb you images won’t get completed any faster.

Also if you making a large number of requests, please combine the requests, so you make a request for the status of 20 jobs at once instead of making 20 requests.

I’ll be fixing these problems at the firewall level, if you end up blocked send me an email and will work out a solution that doesn’t involve making my server cry.
