Just installed Tiny Tiny RSS reader on my server. I added five Stack Overflow feeds to it.

The C# feed is not working, but the rest are. I can open the C# feed perfectly on my home computer using the exact same URL. However, when the server tries to fetch it (every 30 minutes), it comes back with a HTTP error 400. The other four Stack Overflow feeds work perfectly though.

So I'm wondering if the Stack Overflow RSS feeds have a limit on how many requests it will allow from a single IP?

The C# feed URL I am using is: https://stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag/c#

  • Pretty sure they have limits so that you can't duplicate the content.. – Josh Crozier Oct 4 '13 at 18:10

    This wouldn't surprise me. Everything on Stack Exchange is rate limited in some way. – Steven V Oct 4 '13 at 19:34

    Just to clarify: are you sure you're using that URL? Because that'll produce active C questions. You might prefer stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag?tagnames=c%23, which is active C# questions. You might even want stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag?tagnames=c%23&sort=newest, which will give you the newest C# questions. – Shog9 Oct 5 '13 at 2:44
  • @Shog9 your 100% right, i should have been using %23. My bad! – JimCricket Oct 14 '13 at 0:28

Needed to use c%23 in the url instead of #. Doh!
