When I'm not working or moderating Stack Apps, I have a tendency to meddle in bug reports on Meta or take part in writing userscripts for the Stack Exchange network which add features that sometimes get implemented natively. Here's a few you may be interested in:

I've also been known to occasionally break (and sometimes fix!) the Data Explorer, and to busy myself with maintaining the Election Statistics page.

comment Total reputation reported by the /users/{ids}/reputation route is low
The subset of reputation events returned is probably exclusive of deleted items, which I think the on-site report faithfully includes where applicable. That might be the source of the discrepancy but I'd have to science it to see if that's a valid explanation.

comment Use case for /render endpoints?
Not necessarily, the SE Markdown engine has various modifications/extensions that might make delegating the rendering the more reliable solution.

comment Is there a limit on the data that is returned from stackoverflow API calls?
has_more is returned in the response, it indicates you need to make another call with page=n to get more results. The most you'll get back with a single request is 100, assuming you set the pagesize to that.

This is fixed now, thanks.

comment SE Comment Link Helper
@MartinSchröder HTTPS isn't officially supported by the Stack Exchange network yet, but I've updated the script to work with it now regardless. Thanks for pointing that out!

comment Is a deobfuscated version of chat js available?
I don't think so, but obviously I can't be certain.

comment Advanced search API not returning data for “phonegap” tag
You can sort by creation and use min/max which work correctly, I'm not sure what's up with todate and fromdate.

comment Tags missing when fetching from API filtered by dates
It would seem that way, yes, which admittedly isn't very ideal.

comment SENotifier, a Stack Exchange inbox notifier for Mac OS X
As a heads up, this seems to be a general API bug, not specific to this app: "OAuth request must be over HTTPS" when request is over https

comment “OAuth request must be over HTTPS” when request is over https
Even the API documentation fails with the same error, so it must be an internal problem.

comment Moderation request: Flags unhandled for months, please approve
Yeah, that is a bit confusing looking at it from the flag history page. It also doesn't help that there's no notification icon about the review queues like there is for flags, so I have to remember to check to see if there are new items (whereas the flag indicator in the top bar is quite apparent). And thank you!

comment SE Modifications — Username autocomplete in comments, inline revision source, and utility links
@CodyGray Yeah, it's been broken like that for a few weeks at least. Should be fixed now though if you grab the latest.

comment SE Modifications — Username autocomplete in comments, inline revision source, and utility links
@CodyGray Damn, someone finally noticed that! Yeah, I shouldn't have let that linger for so long, I'll fix it up here shortly. Thanks for the report.

Technically it supports more, since it's what the Android app alpha uses behind the scenes, but...shh, secrets.

comment Give us a site's API name in the list of a user's sites
Yes, so long as it's just the domain name. This is mentioned in the paragraph about the site parameter in the documentation, specifically "This parameter can be the full domain name (ie. "stackoverflow.com"), or a short form identified by api_site_parameter on the site object." (emphasis mine)

comment SE API V1.1 documentation, date errata
Hm, I don't know how likely it is that the legacy API documentation will be fixed. I don't believe that the 2.x documentation exhibits the same error, but I haven't read through it comprehensively.

comment Moderation request: Make “scripts” and “user-script” into synonyms of “script”
Hmm, yeah, I'll think on the name. I went with the plural form because it's what Jeff used in the faq post, but that doesn't mean it's most appropriate. I also went and approved your edits, thanks a lot for that!

comment Moderation request: Make “scripts” and “user-script” into synonyms of “script”
It's redundant if there's no need for a tag to relate to userscripts without the actual content of the question being a post for a userscript, which I'm not positive of. I will take a closer look sometime this evening, though.

I'd recommend posting about the issues you have with the mobile web interface on Meta Stack Overflow, by the way.
