comment stackauth.com/1.0/users/{id}/associated not returning display_name for some sites
and @Kevin: I need to fix my code to handle that. The user must have removed his username. It worked yesterday. Why does the Super User /users/{id} query for this user have a display_name field that's not carried into /users/{id}/associated? In other words, why is it in one place but not the other?

I''ll send you some User-Agent headers and server logs. What would you like them to say?

comment Request Throttling Limits
Do you mean "contentious" or "unconscientious", because I think "uncontentious" means the opposite of what you intend. Also s/will be consider/will be considered/.

Have you considered a version that would do this for bugs listed on Meta.SO?

comment Should we adjust the format of the dev-tip questions early on?
+1, I like the dev-tip series, too, and as I hinted in my comment here, they should be in a question and answer format consistent with the SE scheme. However, it just occurred to me that precedent has been set for deviating from Q&A by having app announcements. SA, as it seems, is both meta and not-meta.

Is there a question? This is more suitable for Stack Overflow.

@systempuntoout: That's my default favicon. I may use yours, but I'll have to see what I come up with. The framework stuff is still being worked out.
