I understand what you are saying. However, I need to send surveys for doing
the research. How should I get the permission? I have toolserver account
stating the purpose of the project. Can I write a bot/batchprocess through
toolserver? Right now, I am only testing with 5 users I created.

Do you realise that to run this tool, you need a permission from the
community, otherwise you'll end up blocked?

wikipedia users' behaviour. As a part of the project, I am
developing an application which sends a survey to a random sample of
recent users. I am using mwclient code to send emails though API.
After testing around 3-4 times, the email tokens are not getting
generated anymore. I tried to send mails from different login user. It
the same error.
When I tried to send email from website
. It says," As an
anti-spam measure, you are limited from performing this action too
many times in a short space of time, and you have exceeded this
limit. Please try again in a few minutes." It has been 8 hours since and
still get the same message.
Does this mean, I exceeded limit for my ip
address or for that
user? When I googled it, the rate limit seems to be about 1000 api
calls. I have sent mails only to 3-4 test users for 5 times maximum.
Which is a better way of sending emails to
wikipedia users -
Toolserver or wikimedia API? How should I handle sending bulk
emails(about 100) without getting the "throttled message"?
