comment How to get data related to Winter Bash?
Peter Taylor is apparently not participating in Winterbash (or has no hats). When you check users who do have hats, it works fine.

comment How to get data related to Winter Bash?
What makes you think this only works for yourself? Using your link, I can see your 19 hats, earned 34 times, just fine. This user currently only has 2 hats, which you and I can both see without needing an API key.

comment Total Number Of Answers
Unfortunately no. API support for answer-search is still spotty and buggy. To determine how many answers are accepted or not, you must page through, as you are currently doing, or you can scrape the normal search page and parse the results display at the top.

comment Review queues – bypassing/shunning “honeypot” stuff
Not only can you skip with impunity, you can supposedly automatically pass the audits (don't ask me for details). Furthermore, several douche-bags on Meta Stack Exchange are perfectly fine with this (NOT any SE employees among them, though).

comment 400 (Bad Request) error in time of creating question using StackExchange API
Edit your question to provide an MCVE. You did form-encode the parameters, right?

comment “client_id rejected” error when retrieving the access_token
That's a whole different question. Mark this question as answered and create a new question for that.

comment Request for script, or fix, to add Edit-Reason checkboxes
Bummer. It's not too hard to write, but I've no time for it now.

comment Request for script, or fix, to add Edit-Reason checkboxes
Did you try ADTC's "improved" version that was linked in the comments? Also, the original script requires you to have 2K rep for it to work.

comment “client_id rejected” error when retrieving the access_token
Try creating a new application and seeing if it works. As for verifying that an app is banned, an SE employee would have to answer that.

comment Watch my content
Question's too broad. It's doable, but you'll need a persistent app and a fair amount of not-too-difficult coding. Start with /network-activity, /inbox, and /notifications. Then cross-check /users/{ids}/posts against your app's saved records, etc., etc., etc.

comment `last_editor` is missing but `last_edit_date` is present?
Done. These comments are all probably obsolete now.

comment `last_editor` is missing but `last_edit_date` is present?
Pretty sure the last editor can be a deleted user who is not the OP. So the last_editor property would be blank/missing. You'd have to run /posts/{ids}/revisions to be certain.

comment How to get my StackOverFlow API Key
The StacMan library claims to support all api-v2.1 methods -- which include write and edit of comments. You should be able to take those write examples and modify them for api-v2.2 Q&A posting (method's the same, only the data changes).

comment Is there any API or documentation that would help my adding functionality to Q&A textareas?
Well, you don't have to reinvent anything. The first half of the answer gives the source and the files where SE uses it.

comment Why doesn't network_user include api_site_parameter?
Strictly speaking, this is a duplicate of "Give us a site's API name in the list of a user's sites" -- which is still not implemented.

Going to need some code and details. See the linked question.
