Hello all, please help me.

I use PHP to write a yahoo messenger bot. When my customers register my bot will add them into friends list. The problem is when many users register, my bot will add many friends in a short times I afraid Yahoo will ban my nick. So Yahoo allow me add how many friend per 1 minute?

    Hi, kien

    You are right to be concerned by this limitation. Yahoo has indeed set up some protections to avoid ddos & spammers. Problem is: there is no documentation of what is allowed and what is not.

    So i've tried to find them out and my conclusion is that there is no exact answer. Adding one user every 5 seconds can make your account banned (error 999) for several hours after 7-8 contacts added.
    I did several tests and i had the feeling that adding non-existing yahoo users was getting banned even faster.

    If you find any information, no matter how, please let me know here! I'm interested by this (and I'm not the only one)

    It would be nice to hear back about this.  It looks like I need to wait several hours after I add six contacts.  I've tried slowly adding contacts, but can't seem to get more than 8-12 in a day.  This is not good.  I'm willing to follow any additional protocol.

    Thanks
