comment My app has to be published first? But it's still under development
Oh, I was wondering why people were creating placeholder questions. Thanks for explaining this because I was considering flagging them.

comment Is there an offline copy of the API?
Not a real answer, but you can look for sites like pdfcrowd.com that convert HTML to PDF. I didn't find one that would go through links to get the entire site, but this is a start. I just hope you really aren't wanting to print it. That's a lot of paper to waste for something that may change online. Hope this helps!

Just out of curiosity, why do you want an offline copy? That's so 1997 :D

comment Painfully Obvious Moderators - Know when a post is theirs
@michaelb958 - The problem is in your userscript's include. I replaced with @include http://*.stackoverflow.com/* just as a test, and it worked in Chrome. Hope this helps.

Hey @terdon, I'm still working on updating this, but if you have Chrome/Chromium, you can checkout from github.com/jamesmortensen/stackInbox and then run unpacked from the extensions folder. If a week goes by without any major issues, I'll publish to the Chrome Web store and update this post. Hope this helps.

comment IHaveBadges - A script to link your badges in the toolbar to your list of badges in your profile
@slm - I updated the script so that it works with the new top bar. I just split the badges from the avatar and reputation and linked to the badges. Hope this helps!

comment IHaveBadges - A script to link your badges in the toolbar to your list of badges in your profile
@slm - Yeh, it doesn't work w/the changes. But, I'm not quite sure how to approach this. In the old toolbar, the badges weren't links. In this one, they link to the profile summary by default. How would you suggest approaching this? Maybe a "badges" link next to the flair?

comment Stack Exchange Topbar Tools
Just a suggestion, you could make the license MIT or BSD, which are also commercial-friendly. Thus, the code would be open source for everyone. After all, there's nothing wrong with an individual being able to make a profit, especially if it benefits the SE users.

comment Can Stack Exchange include the number of edits a user has made on a site in /users/<id>/edits?
@Mat - The revisions tab includes tag edits, which don't count toward the badge. I did go through once and count every edit myself. That was a pain. But knowing that info is still in review does help. Thanks again!

comment Can Stack Exchange include the number of edits a user has made on a site in /users/<id>/edits?
Thanks @Mat, that information is sort of hard to find. That makes this feature request slightly less important to me, but it still may be good to add to the API.

comment IHaveBadges - A script to link your badges in the toolbar to your list of badges in your profile
Good point, @CodyGuldner, Assembla is a poor choice for this. I'm considering moving all this stuff to GitHub because (a) it's easier, and (b) more devs are familiar with GitHub than Assembla.

comment Get API responses in formats other than JSON
Can you tell us why you want the data in XML format? Most programs I can imagine someone building would be on the client side, and JSON tends to work really well natively with JavaScript. Perhaps explaining more about what you're trying to do would help us understand the importance of having access to this data in XML format. Hope this helps!

Hey George, I'm assuming this is still broken? It looks like an awesome script, in fact, I'm surprised SE hasn't taken this and made it an actual feature. How cool! .....

comment Bring back the Bold!
It's the $5 fee that's the most complex, but once you get past that, it's a lot less of a hassle. ;) (And yes, I think I'm using some of your scripts. I was sad to see transmogrify break ;( )

comment Bring back the Bold!
Hey Manishearth, what you can do is go into the directory in Chrome where the userscript is installed, and grab both the script AND the manifest file. add in manifest_version:2 property to the manifest, then you can ZIP it up and upload it to the Chrome Web Store! Basically, Userscripts are converted to extensions automatically by Chrome, and this would virtually eliminate installation issues. Hope this helps! :)

comment Real-time desktop notifications for Stack Exchange inbox ( Chrome / Firefox )
@JamesTheAwesomeDude - In your SO profile, click "network user", then grab the uid out of the url. Then in Firefox, just disable and re-enable the extension and the configuration window will pop up and you can paste in your accountId (or "uid" as Rob W calls it)

comment StackInbox - a Chrome/Firefox Extension that Preserves New Stack Exchange Inbox Messages Until They Are Actually Read
You're welcome. I did look into it a bit, and it would be hard to implement in StackInbox but not in another extension. You could use document.addEventListener("DOMNodeInserted" event to listen for changes to the inbox's little red icon, then make an AJAX request to meta.pm.stackexchange.com/inbox/genuwine to get the inbox contents and grab the first item, using it in your webkit notification. Hope this helps! :)
