@talegari i'm surprised it's working at all, to be honest... they turned off v1 of the API and i haven't updated it yet to use the new API (although I've been meaning to, maybe this weekend?). it's not set to use any of the sites outside of the main 5, but as i said, i will hopefully be updating this soon.

There are a lot of things I need to do, but that's a pretty good suggestion! :)

@nispio a bit of work needs to be done to modernize this extension, admittedly... i can't say when i'll have the time to do so, but i definitely would like to.

@mike it doesn't work for any except stackoverflow, stackapps, serverfault, superuser, and meta.stackoverflow. unfortunately i haven't had a chance to update it lately because of paid work!

@george yeah there are a lot of similarities, but the format is still too different to easily incorporate it (QA site vs just an app listing). i suppose i can put it in as a future development, but i'm not sure when i'll be touching this project again (working for free makes less money than working for money :)

@george hm... dunno... the api is different... it would take a lot of finagling to make it work alongside the stackexchange stuff. plus there are no votes/answers or anything like that

@george ha! great! if you wanted, you could completely repurpose a lot of my code to make one that follows apps on your site :)

@kevin do you think it's a good idea for stackexchange sites to maintain a stackexchange api? for instance, if xyz.stackexchange.com graduates, could its api be api.xyz.stackexchange.com rather than api.xyz.com? The way Ch Extensions work is you must grant the site TLD permission in the extension's manifest.json. Every time you add a permission (similar to a mobile app) you must request the user to accept the change. This can be annoying to users. if you stay with api.xyz.stackexchange.com, no more future permissions need to be added

comment StackStalker: Be Notified When Your Question Is Updated (Chrome Extension)
@kevin - updated to include *.stackexchange.com sites. I assume that when they are added to the API I will only have to add them to the list of sites rather than add *.newsite.com to permissions...

@kevin - is that the plan for future sites that will be using the API? or will they get *.mynewstacksite.com? if it's the former, it's super easy. if it's the latter, it could be a problem each time a new site is added (permissions and such)

@george ps, are you by chance using my app to follow this thread? or are you just hanging around the site

comment StackStalker: Be Notified When Your Question Is Updated (Chrome Extension)
@george - yeah, make the "search" search the tags as well as the description. i didn't have "chrome extension" in my description but i had both in my tags and my app didn't come up. also, if you showed links to other apps that had the same tags, that would be cool. a tag autocomplete would be nice and reduce tag noise as well. those are just my first impressions. otherwise, very nice! i wish i could follow it using my app, hahaha

@daniel i'd like to be able to sync between comps, but i don't think google sync is how to do it: google.com/sync/index.html it looks like all that service does is sync contacts, calendars, and email

@koen - are you using v2.1.2? If you're on a lower version than that, you're using a version connected to the old (non-working) API and questions won't add. If you are on v2.1.2, try disabling and re-enabling the extension. If none of that works, let me know!

comment How to call the API via JSONP in Plain Old JavaScript
@code poet - easy there, killer... that comment had nothing to do with you or your efforts or anything. it was merely a statement of fact in response to george's comment. i can (and do) perform the same action that you do here in approximately 10% of the code using jQuery. And no, it's not because of that link to whatever wrapper you wrote that I have never seen before now. jeez.. you sound like my girlfriend always making everything about you :\
