"the 'or' behavior was easier" - that's as good a reason as any other I guess... :-)

comment Add information to badges/{id} method.
Kind of tend to agree with George on this one. It would be nice to be able to fetch the info for one particular badge.

comment Unanswered questions API does not work
Yep, that is a no repro currently. questions gives me ~700K, unanswered gives me ~100K. Must've been fixed while tweaking other stuff.

comment Can't get JSON representation for the help
@Kevin - I was actually hoping for both. The help?json would return formalized list of all available API methods; the help?/method?method=...&json would return a formalized description of the parameters.

comment Can't get JSON representation for the help
I was thinking about building a console-type app, that uses the JSON representation of the help for autocomplete and for showing a plain text help in the app. Another scenario would be automatic proxy building against newer version of the API. In general, a JSON representation of the help can help with any scenarios where one needs automated API discovery/enumeration, kind of like a JSON WSDL.

@George ping me offline, we'll chat a bit more on this one if you're interested in building it together.

Here are some other alternative names - AntiObjects, LateBinding (the .org is still free), WeaklyTyped and the obvious ChatOverflow, StackOverchat.

Well, the obvious one would be SmallTalk, wouldn't it? After all, it's all about passing messages related to programming... :-) Unfortunately, that domain is taken by a squatter. :-(
