Reminder: Query Limits and responsible use

The frontpage news bits

Hey, apparently folks need to hear this again: every WiGLE user has a daily query limit associated with their account.
This keeps the service available for everyone without costing $ALL_THE_MONEY. If you deploy code that REALLY doesn't respect your daily limit, we'll disable your account. If you try and register multiple of accounts to circumvent the limit, bad things will also happen.
Also, if you're trying to use WiGLE data for commercial purposes, maybe contact us and help support the project.

That makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately I am trying to learn how to use the platform and couldn't even understand how to try one query before being told my daily limit expired. Is there a way I could practice without costing anyone? I really want to understand this, but I also see how reasonable it would be that queries would be limited.
for a start, don't register multiple accounts - that will get you flagged permanently.
Wouldn't it make sense, for example, to add a button on the phone to the map to generate wifi points on the map and indicate somewhere the number of available commands before the limit expires? It would make things a lot easier, thanks for a reply.
