Lots of 503, 403 past 12 hours or so?

API Discussion
Anyone else getting an unusual number of 503 and 403 responses in say the last twelve hours? I'm seeing this for WoW end points on both the old and new APIs.

In all cases the same request usually ends up working fine on a retry shortly after (and the same code was working fine for some weeks prior.)

I don't think I'm anywhere close to the throttles.
I had exactly same problem yesterday and I thought today is working but... not, still this, but if I send that request again is working, but its fail if send other different request ....
Getting this a lot using the Wow community api's.

Same here. If I retry enough the data usually comes through, but it sometimes requires a lot of waiting.
I'm having a lot of 503 errors myself. I find when I query basic information about (i.e. no fields) the query will very rarely fail, however, when I try to get information about quests, the failure rate tends to increase to around to 25%. When I manually do lookup (i.e. using wget), I notice that it is NOT the same mashery responder.
Appears to have been fixed as of last night, thanks!
