See the documentation for network_user.   top_answers and top_questions are not returned by default; you must specify them explicitly in a filter. When you ran /me/associated from the doc page and from your app, you used a filter (!-*f(6r3ZbZjn) that specified those two properties. When you used the address bar of the browser, you didn't specify a ...

items is documented in the Common Wrapper Object. It is an array of whichever object the given route returns. In the case of /me/associated,  items is an array of network_user objects. If you use a filter that returns .wrapper.type, then type will return the type that items has assumed. EG: { "items": [ // <=== Linked ...

The routes that don't link require POST requests because they create context, so there's nothing meaningful to be gained by going to those URLs in your browser. The rest of the routes return data when you send GET requests to them, which is why the link is useful in that case.

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.

You cannot do this. A delete feature has been requested and requested again (with status-planned given about 3.5 years ago). Register your desire for this by immediately upvoting these posts: Deleting an application key? How to delete an OAuth (2.0) API key? (Theoretically, if those feature requests get enough upvotes, they might get some developer ...

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 ...

The authentication process is described in the API docs: http://api.stackexchange.com/docs/authentication.

This is either a bug or an incomplete feature. See: What is the 'rev' dropdown supposed to do? Stack Exchange Revisions Dropdown Does Nothing? This extra dropdown seems to require: That the post have had previous edits. That the page mode editor is invoked. This editor is the default for low-rep users under at least some conditions. (low rep ...

You are probably having this error because of throttles (most likely per-method throttles) that are used to prevent abusive usage. Have a look at related documentation page in order to learn more about throttles. Normally you should wait for a specified period which is returned in the backoff field of the previous response.

Quoting from a comment of @BrockAdams to one of my answers, the preview parameter is used for development and testing purposes. If you set it to true, your request will only simulate whether it is a valid request or not and will not change anything on the site.

In order to get 50 questions for every request you need to pass pagesize parameter to your request URL. When you pass this parameter, you will need to pass page parameter to fetch the following pages. In order to exclude some attributes from the default set, you can use the "Try It" part of the documentation to create a filter for your specific purpose. ...

No unnecessary parameters are required. order and sort are always optional. You can see this with these direct API calls: /2.2/users/5035500/questions?site=stackoverflow /2.2/users/331508/questions?site=stackoverflow It's hard to demonstrate a live link for /me/questions, since it requires an access token, but if you call that route from an app or ...

The answer to this question is the same to your other question about preview parameter. As @BrockAdams mentioned in a comment to one of my questions previously, you need to set preview parameter to true while testing write API calls. Please check the other answer for more information.

Although this can be annoying or confusing, there is no bug. Take a look at your Stack Exchange accounts page. Currently it shows: (Click for larger image) 10 questions, here on Stack Apps, and 1 question on Stack Overflow. Those are the same numbers currently reported for you by /users/{ids}/associated. Both sets of numbers are currently stale (You ...

The API responses are always compressed and the default compression is GZIP. This means that you must use the proper GZIP-handling libraries to fetch the data. So, instead of: BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader ( yc.getInputStream () )); You would use something more like: BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader (new ...

I am not familiar with iOS programming but it seems your end point is invalid. As a result you will get "page not found" html response. Instead of using http://stackexchange.com/oauth /2.2/users?order=desc&sort=reputation&site=stackoverflow&Client_Id=5029, try to use ...
