I’d have a question about Nominatim usages.
I’ve used the nominatim API for some weeks. My goal is to get the coordinates of a list of cities (about 20 per day). A script is launched every day in order to get that coordinates.
But I noticed that I haven’t got that infos for maybe two weeks. But when I launch that script on localhost I have no problem.
Therefore it seems my IP is blocked by the Nomitatim service.
Would it be true ? And could you give me more informations about that ?
Thank you very much,

the usage rules are described here:
If the admins blocked your account, they consider what you are doing as a violation of the usage policy.
If that is the case you should consider other options: a paying service, or running your own Nominatim instance
Ok thanks for the reply.
Do you know how I could get in touch with the admins ?

or have a look at other possibilities via
It might also be the case that Nominatim is down. If I’m looking up an address on
openstreetmap.org (which I presume, will not be black-listed) I cannot find an address with Nominatim either.
