Script to download repl zip files failing with 403
nathankieffer (0)

I have been using python and powershell scripts to download a group of repls using the .zip url associated with each one. I was performing the downloads every 15 minutes in order to track progress on each repl. The scripts worked fine for several days but then started failing with a 403 error. Am I breaking some kind of rule by doing this or is it something else? I changed the user agent on the relevant method calls that perform the request but it still fails.
