I'm looking at how the Stack Exchange API could be useful in my site. Is it fair to say I am in read-only mode when I search for results? What is some envisioned use-case scenarios for this?
I imagined a use case for my site. Is it possible for me to take a given ID (say OpenID) and see if they are a user of your site? I'd like to give users with high reputation extra access on my site.
What do you think?
