I mean, the value's not wrong, just perhaps not useful? The QPM is taken over the entire lifetime of the site, so 10005086 / 3644369.9112 = 2.745354133577943, where 3644369.9112 is ((Date.now() / 1000) - site.launch_date) / 60 I'm not sure if there'd be a better default timespan though—it's probably better to just pull the question count for the period ...

It sounds like you've either got a bug which is in fact making more requests than you think it is, or you're on a network where there's some other source of high-frequency requests. You're not supposed to have to deal with this situation in general, because this isn't an API error - it's an error from the load balancer because your IP is generating incoming ...

So, this was a fun one. :) We apparently broke several different things over the course of a year that went unnoticed until Google turned off OpenID support. In no particular order but for fun and posterity: Facebook OAuth authentication just straight up didn't work. It broke back in January of 2014 when the code was accidentally changed from function ...

This is a bug. I've tagged your question accordingly. total, in the wrapper object, should always be the length of the items array, after concatenating all pages of results. When I run /2.2/notifications?pagesize=100&filter=!*L6X1NqVdlFobvlv, I get 4 pages of results, currently totaling 382 items: total remains fixed at 77. This is clearly a bug, ...

This seems to have been silently/magically fixed in the last 7 months (Date of Nicos Karalis' comment). Descriptions seem correct now. I had verified that they weren't correct when I upvoted this question on Apr 29 '14. Side note: It's not documented, but apparently tag-based badges are not listed unless they have been awarded at least once. Take a ...

This sure looks like a bug. Site search shows that there were 946 browserify questions created in 2015 (so far). The /tags route doesn't have a created option, but it shows 0 questions were active in 2015! No permutation yielded valid results when trying to specify any fromdate after 2012-05-23 (midnight on the 22nd). It seems the result is either the ...

There is no difference and... The inbox has always been "The global inbox". Certainly for as long as the API has existed. So any inbox route will be Stack Exchange wide, even if it accepts a site parameter. If you look at the doc for the /users/{id}/inbox/unread route, it says: This method is effectively an alias for /inbox/unread. It is provided for ...

This is a very minor bug in the documentation page. The online doc page adds a convenient hyperlink to the post (The link part is not in the API's JSON response). That's a good thing. Most of the time this is rock solid, but notifications span all Stack exchange sites and the API doc pages normally only expect one site at a time. When the page is making ...

Update: Evidence now suggests that the API quota rolls over at a unique time for each app. 24 hours after that app-key, plus IP, combination made its first API call. See this chat message. The quota does reset every 24 hours, but the time seems to wander is custom for every app-instance. Some years ago, I seem to remember it resetting around midnight ...

From the docs: Searches a site for any questions which fit the given criteria. (emphasis mine) The searches on the API aren't guaranteed to exactly replicate the current on-site search, so this behaviour is expected. This may change in some future release of the API, but the current behaviour is closer to the old on-site search approach, which only ...

is_answered is true if there is at least one positively scoring answer. It doesn't actually mean 'marked as accepted'.

There seem to be 2 or 3 effects, the biggest is that the Tags page also shows Synonyms. There may also be a small cache effect, but there seems to be another discrepancy as well, possibly an error/bug. You can see that the Tags page also shows Synonyms by: Go to the Tags page. Enter userscr in the Type to find tags: box. You will see something like: ...
