Tumbr rate limit being hit (for default API key)See original GitHub issue
Since you bundle an API key it’s being used too much, maybe allow the user to supply their own key?

Not really, the API v1 was depreciated but Tumblr still prefers that over v2 for scraping. I’ll see if I can find the email thread I have with one of their devs but they basically confirmed this for one of my own projects as it causes less stress on their servers.
The rate limit per IP for the AP v1 would be a lot higher than the rate limit for everyone using the API v2.
