This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't think this action is rate limited. Trying to look for a source though. – Shadow Wizard Feb 11 '13 at 9:32
4,451,521?. By the time you read this comment the number will have increased. I wouldn't recommend it though and the devs might complain. – ben is uǝq backwards Feb 11 '13 at 9:33
@ShaWizDowArd, I think it's not a duplicate, since this qn is about per day – Azik Feb 11 '13 at 10:04
@Azik but the answer there also answer your question: "no limit", which also implies no limit per day. Saw that other question only after answering here though. – Shadow Wizard Feb 11 '13 at 10:06
anyway I got the answer for my qn – Azik Feb 11 '13 at 10:09

Not all actions are rate limited, only actions which either can lead to abuse or are "expensive" in the code behind e.g. take resources from the server.

Adding a question to your favorites list is a simple action which can't really be abused so it's not rate limited.

Complete list of rate limited actions can be found here.

Should that be "expensive", or does this feature take up 10000+ lines of code? ;-) – Jon Egerton Feb 11 '13 at 9:50
@Jon I will go after you with a huge "E"! (but yeah, good point ;)) – Shadow Wizard Feb 11 '13 at 9:55
