comment Advice for replacing a mailing list and FAQ with Stackexchange integration for an open source code project?
Off topic here (and too broad). Ask on Meta Stack Overflow or Meta Stack Exchange. This issue has been addressed several times

comment The text size in the Stack Exchange app should be user-configurable
Since this question is about the official SE app, it is off topic here. Ask it on Meta Stack Exchange.

comment Posting an answer via StackOverflow API
I think you can (haven't tested), but normally you would POST this. Be sure to properly URL or Form encode, either way.

comment Are there plans to involve Area51 in SE API version 3?
Perennial question. The last official answer ("No... it's different... currently no plans") is unlikely to change.

comment Should the access tokens expire?
That is all a matter of opinion. The responsible thing would be to to never use no_expiry so that the user and your app have a little more protection against exploits. The API takes care of reprompting the user as required.

comment Where are the built-in filters?
Your comment contradicts the last sentence of the question.

comment API returns delete vote count for questions, but not for answers
"Delete votes" on answers are a very different beasty. They don't work the same as for questions and, IIRC, they are only available for 20K users and moderators -- and only if the A has a negative score, for the former group.

comment Stackopedia - all the answers to the questions you never asked
Read the FAQ post again. The thumbnail must be 144 x 119 pixels and PNG format. I replaced your image with one of mine and it works just fine where it's supposed to. Reformat your thumb and edit it in.

comment Showing Different user on posting a comment on test environment
Good you got it solved. You should probably delete this question then, as it's unlikely to help anyone else.

comment StackExchange API Java wrapper
The OP will have to answer that, but keep in mind that the SE API, that this Java API wraps, last changed over a year ago (version 2.2).

You would use a standard GitHub pull request.

His code is available on GitHub. Have you tried it? That would answer many of these questions.

comment How can I introduce my Stack Overflow app to other users?
Oh dear, that's not what I meant. Your post here should be per this. Your posts on other sites must address a need, that other people have, that is fully within the purview of that other site.

comment Fetch the Personalized Prediction Data through the API?
There is no (documented) API for this and given that this data is somewhat static and tertiary, I would say that this should be a low priority until some rather annoying bugs and missing features are addressed. Meanwhile, you can write a browser extension to automate getting this data. I'm guessing that if such an extension made more than a few requests a day that it might call down lightning bolts from angry sysadmins?

comment Showing Different user on posting a comment on test environment
Details? Screen shots? Recipe to duplicate? Both account Ids? Links to actual posts made? (10K users and the owner (you) can see deleted posts.)

comment 'The target origin provided does not match the recipient window's origin' message when trying to use localhost
This is a bug, the same as in "Javascript SDK channelUrl for local development". The javascript SDK does not properly handle ports when you call SE.authenticate().

comment API throws improper error when “date” parameters are the same
Yes, that was implicit in my answer. I've now made it explicit.

comment Resurfacing bug: “could not parse proxy url” error message
You might make it clear that this bug only occurs on a cold login. When I completely de-auth a machine and then try the test page, I see the failure as you describe (after being asked to sign in and successfully doing so). Once I am signed in to SE, then the second attempt at auth succeeds. I can see that this would be quite annoying.

comment Okay to use Stack Exchange's icon?
See the answers at the duplicate question. See, also, this answer by one of SE's founders.
