Hi batman111!
At the present time, we are trying to keep API access to ongoing development efforts.
If you're using a different project, you're not required to have your own key, only if you're developing your own scraper.
We're curious to see how new projects use TGDB API.
If you have a new public project, please provide a link to it so we can highlight cool new applications! 8-)

Hello,
why I do not have the right to have an API key and the other person yes ?

You've been granted an API key which you can access through this page.

Please check the Announcements forum on a regular basis to ensure compliance with any changes or updates.

Documentation is available on Swagger here.

Thank you for your interest!

As you've clarified your use, you've been granted an API key.
To date, the other user has not clarified whether they're developing their own scraper, or want a personal key for an existing scraper (which is pointless, as that's not how the server handles keys).
