Although I currently work mainly on the Microsoft .net stack, I have experience with Java, Perl, PHP and many others in the past.

@KronoS I have considered porting to WinRT but just don't have the time. If you are interested in tackling it let me know ;)

@GeorgeStocker - Sorry, I need to do some branch merging back into main. If you build the V2 branch it should build fine. And you are right, I haven't updated the nuget package to v2 yet.

I am not sure I understand what you mean. If you do: Question q = client.GetQuestion(12324); ...Then some time passes... and you do q = client.GetQuestion(12324); wouldn't that do the trick? Are you asking if there is a way to bypass the cache?

Since the methods and parameters pretty much exactly mirror that of the actual stack exchange API, I decided to not repeat that work. You can view their awesome documentation here: api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/usage. Let me know if you think there would be some value in making a comprehensive documentation for Stacky which is kept in sync with the official stack exchange API documentation.

@eth0 - I am not aware of an easy way to get tag FAQs in the current API. You can get questions by tag and you can get linked questions but I don't know of a way to link them together and sort them.

comment Stackoverflow as an app on Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Phone 7?
No worries. I guess I have just been working on other stuff ;)

comment App devs - Would you use something like this if it were available?
@code - yeah, I think the lazy loading is a very useful feature. I have it in the plans to add that to stacky at some point.

comment Getting required upvotes for apps tab is too dependant on release date
+1 this is so meta it almost makes my head explode ;) Using the API to pull stats about a discussion about the API. Awesome!

are you going to update the docs to reflect this?

comment /questions/tagged/{tags} - tags param clarification
The documentation for the /questions route isn't clear on what the delimiter is. It just says "List of tags questions must have" So the delimiter is officially changed to semicolon?

comment API V2 Musings: What would you like to see
this was suggested a while back on the old stack apps beta site and was marked as postponed until v2.

comment Conscientious use of the API
Well, I ran into the problem tonight of having my IP run out of anonymous request due to integration testing with my library. The only solution I have is to include an API key as part of my libraries tests.

I'll have to give some thought to this. I think I would prefer to just add a boolean matchExact (like you originally suggested in your question) to the method and then in the implementation I could translate that to using the min and max parameters. Exposing this min and max wierdness directly to the API consumers seems confusing to me.

comment SOAPI-WATCH: A realtime service that notifies subscribers via Twitter when the API changes in any way
I like your idea of a diff just listing the items that have been changed. I am not too particular about the format of the diff I just want to know when things are changed.

comment Keep getting HTTP 406
I agree that it is fine to have compression on by default but I don't think allowing the ability to turn it off will really be wasting that much bandwidth.

comment Keep getting HTTP 406
I get this error from work (behind a corporate firewall) but not at home. I haven't yet found a workaround.
