If you participated in the private beta and produced actual apps/libraries, you got a gold badge and 4,000 reputation. If you were in the private beta and got at least 1 up vote, you got a silver badge and 2,000 reputation. See: http://stackapps.com/badges To be clear. Nothing from dev.meta.stackoverflow.com gets copied over to stackapps.com. It is simply ...

Nice, but: you're not using the SE provided Imgur account? But then you're basically introducing image rot? For free accounts: How long do you keep the images? As long as images are getting at least 1 view every 3 months, they will stick around forever. After that, your image may be removed to create more space for newer images. (Note that a ...

This is great. Love it. Thanks man! Suggestions for additional taglines: I'm so glad you asked me that, but I have no clue how to solve it. Have a Calvin & Hobbes strip instead! I have no idea. However, legend has it that reading Calvin & Hobbes strips will increase your problem solving ability so maybe that can help you. I have no idea. But ...

Have you looked at the http://stackapps.com/badges page? Maybe you should...

If you look on that password page, it says: Thank you for participating in the private API beta! We're now starting the public beta - you can find more information on http://stackapps.com. The dev.meta.stackoverflow.com site is no longer active. This is the new location for API related subjects. You should have goten an email notifying you of ...

Feature request: for us poor sods < 3k rep on meta, could you also show the Transmogrification option next to the flag link instead, together with an auto-flagging-as-off-topic action?

This would be a good idea, as it would immediately clue developers into the resources that are here specifically to make the API easier to use.

Yes, see the wiki page for the script tag.

Yes, you can post extensions here that don't use the API. There are several scripts/extensions/apps posted here that use undocumented interfaces(example) or even screen scraping(example). The extension must make use of the API and/or enhance one or more Stack Exchange sites. Reference: Stack Exchange APIs Terms of Use (Still applies, for the most ...

After a day's testing (and my first real-world use!) I can see the need for three features that would be really great to have: An eraser — might be half-way easy to implement? I don't know. A reset button next to the "Save" button. Maybe a very small text link pointing to the original image underneath the edited image? One bug: If you leave the image's ...

Yes, stack​‌apps is different from any other StackExchange site in a variety of ways: Most "Questions" are meant to be announcement / product pages for scripts, apps, and libraries. To this end, note: Stack Apps has special tags: app, script, and library to facilitate posting tools that use the API and/or enhance Stack Exchange sites. These posts look ...

Should we ask the dev team politely to enable Stack Snippets here? Yes! It would, primarily, be useful in cases such as your example: support with using the API. I think people looking for help would always appreciate a minimal example, just to see outputs and how you might go about doing something, and it doesn't take too long to make a snippet! ...

There you have it, the George Edison Free Hand Circle Badge! I promised him I'd suggest a badge if he pulled this off. Here's the badge:

I think this is not specific to Stack Apps, All the reputation graph on Trilogy site don't show bonus points. For your case, 100 is from Account Associations, 4000 is from Api Evangelist badge bonus point. But I hope they could add those bonus info to reputation-graph as well.

I totally agree: Discussion: dialog revolving around a topic Support: a request for assistance or clarification discussion != support

As a result of direct contact by yours truly with the SO team, the thresholds for CW were relaxed for app/library posts on StackApps a few weeks ago. I will defer to the powers that be to post the specific numbers if/when they deem appropriate, but I can confirm that they are significantly increased from previous values. Don't go nuts churning your posts ...

No need, the "apps" tag pulls anything tagged "app" or "library" already. Alternately, just click library and browse all the libraries. (sorry, this change has been in for a while, we just hadn't deployed.)

They are one and the same. When the API was first announced (March 31st, 2010), it was temporarily called the "Stack Overflow API" -- even though Jeff said that the API would be "for all the trilogy sites". Two month's later, when stackapps.com and the public beta were announced, the official name was already Stack Exchange API. There is no separate API ...

There's no real expectation set for this, feel free to pick whichever option seems better to you. I personally feel the tag is sufficient, but I could see how having it in the title might save some people some disappointment. My hope is that people will just finish their app and it won't matter much either way, so I'm not particularly concerned.

i have a doc scraper that produces json schema and smd. eventually it will be published as a service on SOAPI2.com, much the same way that soapi.info provides meta for v1. but until then you can find the meta files here: https://github.com/bitpusher/SOAPI2/tree/master/src/SOAPI2.DocScraper/js this meta is what i generate routes and model for soapi2 from, ...

We draw the best circles.

I think www.stackapps.com should be redirected to stackapps.com, currently can see the same page but cookies validation looks failing

This should be fixed as of the latest build. Default tag wikis are a bit special behind the scenes, and the API simply wasn't looking for them at all.

ScheduledController.InvalidateVotes() This means the vote anomaly detector saw a statistical anomaly in votes cast to your account (up or down) and invalidated them.

Users on meta sites inherit from users on main sites, but not every main site user will have a meta account. Meta users are spun up "on demand", the trigger generally being the first time a user visits a meta site.

Thank you! All of the new changes are welcome and I can't wait to start implementing some of them in my apps. I do have one question though: what happened to all of my apps? I had a thumbnail image set for all of them and it doesn't look like any of them are being displayed despite matching the requirements (144x119 in PNG format). Edit: This doesn't ...

Poll style question have long been made "Community Wiki" on our sites. Note that the [dev-tip] questions changed were all of the form "Post your solution to X," a poll question. We had let this slide in the past, but the recent rash of (I'm sure, innocuous) posts brought the issue back to the forefront. Furthermore, there's already a place for your ...

Personally I think listing apps that use the data dump are fine -- it's an expansion of scope for stackapps, but then so was adding support for browser scripts. Generally anything third-party and programmery that makes the network more awesome should go here.
