My application makes a number of calls to the users/lookup.json API call. Prior to making those calls my application queries rate_limit_status.json so that I know how many calls I can make.
To properly test this, I query the API and it returns a “remaining” of 60. If I then make 5 calls to user/lookup.json (via POST if that makes any difference) and retest the rate_limit_status.json function I’m expecting a “remaining” of 55 but instead get a result of 60.
Is this an issue with rate_limit_status.json or am I missing something really stupid?
