I'm a .NET Developer primarily. Most of my experience is with your typical line-of-business CRUDy apps, but I'm bit on taking agile methodologies and new coding concepts and technologies and applying them to the solutions I'm working with.

Right now I'm working on encapsulating all that functionality into a centralized JS script, with the hopes that if / when a discovery API is implemented, I can change everything in one place and it will be implemented across my extension. Once that happens, I'll be sure to remember you and drop you a comment.

Could you maybe try hitting the API URL of the site the user is trying to add, and if you get an error or an unexpected response, you can assume that the site either isn't a StackExchange site or the API hasn't been activated on it yet.

comment StackExtend - A Google Chrome Extension to enhance the Stack Exchange experience
The extension has now been updated to queue incoming requests, and hopefully not trigger and DDNS detection on StackExchange sites. If you installed via the chrome extensions gallery, it should update itself soon, or you can expand the "Developer" section and click on "Update All Extensions". Let me know if you see any more problems. I just tried hammering meta for a while and it seems to be fine now.

comment StackExtend - A Google Chrome Extension to enhance the Stack Exchange experience
I dug into this a bit, and it does look like making multiple API calls when visiting a StackOverflow site seems to be the culprit. This app will call the "home" sites API once, and the "child" sites APIs once per user on a question, so that's triggering something. Hopefully I can find a resolution to this - I'll keep everyone posted.
