comment How to search answers like is:answer
Confirmed that the new /search/excerpts route allows you to search answers too. Unfortunately, you still can't limit results to only answers.

@gandalf3, It's all good. But where's a patent troll when you need them? :)

comment How can I create a Stack Exchange app for windows phone?
There are several apps. See here, here, and here. ... Otherwise this question is currently both a duplicate of "Looking for a beginner's tutorial to using the API" and "Too broad".

comment Can I retrieve the API interfaces via the API?
Semantics. How is that any different? (specify) The answer remains the same and remains valid.

comment Getting display name of the site on which question is located
You can get it for migrated sites because they are returned in a site object. The API designers saw no need to return a site object for the question itself. ... As for client-side JS. Either just run /sites once per page load or cache the results in localStorage. It's not hard and works well, on average.

Not bad. I still like using the page's jQ as shown in this post as it avoids some timing issues and makes debugging a bit easier.

Yes it does. See developer.chrome.com/extensions/match_patterns .

You should also add a @name line since its omission will cause sneaky problems. Likewise @grant none is a good idea as a start/baseline.

This misses some sites and most of the meta sites. Use //*. for all lines.

comment API returns the last activity date even if asked not to
Here's a fun fact: So far, adding &type=jsontext to the end of the request clears up the misbehavior! This is flaky stuff.

comment Unhelpful error message when attempting to authenticate
That message at least points in the right direction without compromising security. Printing out the expected URL would be a security hole. Maybe a message to make sure the two URL/domains match -- without providing details?

comment Byte Order Mark suddenly appearing in query results
Question needs specifics. Nevertheless, I checked and something's there (not harming my apps at all). I get F7EF F7BB F7BF though instead of the expected EF BB BF (May be a Firefox artifact). If you fetch the results using the text/plain MimeType, it shouldn't be a problem. (Works for me.) Update: application/json also works for me (BOM auto-handled).

comment Elections Statistics page for Stack Exchange sites
The bug and first feature request were done. Second feature request would be nice but is also covered by the election page itself.
