I updated several aspects of the app in response to user feedback: Error handling is somewhat better (it will now tell you if your token is invalid, instead of a generic "error" alert) Queued API calls are aborted now, which should speed up site changing, among other things. There's now an option to deauthorize the app, should you decide to revoke its ...

I'm declining this, not because I don't see the merit in it, but because we don't have the data to return in anything approaching a reasonable time. Our badge awarding code is very complex, and intentionally run in staggered (and even, in some cases, random) schedule to prevent DOS-ing our own databases. Opening those queries up via an API would be ...

Before StackApps, there was a small group of people privately testing the API. After some time, StackApps was created and everyone was notified so that they could move their content there. A handful of people who had actively participated were hand-selected to receive badges. The badge was awarded as soon as the user registered on the site.

Just found it myself, in a comment on Chacha102s answer to What’s with the reputation here on Stack Apps? Jeff states: people who built (and shared) actual apps with the API in private beta qualified for beta gold. people who got at least one upvote qualified for beta silver As this information has not been exactly easy to uncover I'll keep this posts ...

Could you add progress towards the Enlightened and Guru badges for answers too? These would list accepted answers that have scores close to 10 and 40 respectively (with the Enlightened candidates limited to first answers only), as well as list not-yet-accepted answers where the score (and "first answer") criteria have been met and would qualify for just ...

Could the Sportsmanship badge be tracked with this application? I know data.SE can't, but an authorized app like this might be able to access more data? (As you can see, I don't really know anything about stack app development. I very much like your app, though, thanks for that!)

Running a query on Programmers after running one on Stack Overflow carries over a tag score from SO. I have no points on Programmers for C# Reauthenticating and running the Programmers query a second time seems to correct this.

Remember the existence of /badges/recipients, which does not take any badge ids. For that method, simply returning users would be essentially useless; /badges/{ids}/recipients returns the same type in-keeping with the /something/{ids}/tail pattern. Also note that if you pass multiple badge ids you need the badge data to distinguish who earned which badge ...

The API (once it's version 1.0*, anyway) won't change. You're concerns are unwarranted. Just sum the gold, silver, and bronze badges counts you get from /users/{id}. *And with 0.9 being a release candidate, there almost certainly won't be any changes in badges of all things before 1.0

A config thing in the GUI to set your ID would be nice. And as far as packaging goes, why not upload to KDE-Apps.org so we can grab it with Get Hot New Stuff on the Plasmoid picker? EDIT: I tried putting in my ID for ubuntu.stackexchange.com into lib/settings.py and s/stackoverflow/ubuntu.stackexchange/ on lib/stacktray.py but the text hover only ever ...
