Confirmed; see bottom section, below. However, please refer to Provide a way to retrieve questions and answers that have been deleted -- which is "status-planned". This is a feature, not a bug. And this kind of feature has been requested many times. So, shush please, don't ruin it for us. ;) Confirmation info: You can see this behavior (for now) with ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Sorry about that. Turns out, return URLs were broken on stackexchange.com entirely during signup and login. A fix is out now, so any API app auth redirect issues should also be resolved with it. Please let me know if you see any other problems. Thanks for the report, and my apologies for the delay in fixing the issue.

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: ...

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 ...
