Thanks for the bug report and the feedback :)

Okay, I believe I found and fixed the bug. Can you try this again? There are only certain situations where this occurs, and having the same tag in the top 40 on 2 sites is one of them :)

Hmm, it should clear out. I'll double check the logic, thanks. Also, since the "Generalist" queries come last, it's possible that it just hadn't updated yet, although it should blank prior to changing.

Another small update this evening - Kevin added options to the top tag list query, so now more of your top tags should show up for the Generalist badge. Also, the tags look more like tags now than they did before.

comment HTTP 500 error when calling /apps/{accessTokens}/de-authenticate with an access_token argument in GET
Sounds good, will do.

comment HTTP 500 error when calling /apps/{accessTokens}/de-authenticate with an access_token argument in GET
Makes sense. Thanks for the fix. Should I pass the access_token as part of the GET parameters, so as to get the request properly tracked from a throttle perspective? Or can you guys do this from the access_token in the URL? I don't think it matters that much (throttle-wise, it's a tiny amount of the total requests) but I thought I'd ask anyhow.

comment Is it possible to get daily reputation change for a user via the API?
Currently I'm pulling this data from the user's reputation graph by reading and parsing a page from their profile. It's a little kludgey, but if you guys don't have a problem with it, I can keep doing it this way until API n+1.

This doesn't seem like an issue with my app, (unless I'm doing something silly, which is possible) so I've raised it as a support/bug issue here: stackapps.com/questions/3000/…

What happens if you click "Request New Token" on this page?

Hmm... could you be disabling javascript or blocking some content? If you're logged in, you should see some buttons at the bottom. That's a stackexchange screen, not something from my app.

@DOK, and it just keeps looping you there? what does the page look like?

@DOK, I tested this on Mac and Windows FF latest, and had success in a variety of scenarios - different authentication states for the app, and different login statuses for my account. What page is looping continuously for you? Can you screenshot it and/or give me the url in your browser? I feel like I've seen this before in the authorization screen, and it might help me (or Kevin) figure out where the issue is.

@DOK, and you were logged into a stackexchange site prior to clicking the link? I've been testing in FF but it's possible I missed something. Thanks for the bug report, and I'll look into it.

@DOK, my apologies for the bad experience. What browser and version? I'll try to debug it some this evening.

@patridge, I'll add that to the todo list for the next version. Switching sites also does not empty the request queue (so if you switch mid-refresh, you have to wait for the refresh to finish, bleh!) With all the attention, I'm loathe to roll out a new version right this second, but rest assured any bugs found will be fixed in short order :)

@DOK As far as I can tell, the system is running smoothly, however, there might be bugs :) This is a 2-day old app, and both it and the API are "beta" quality! I'm so thrilled it's being noticed, however...

@patridge, actually, I was hitting that with my first project, LaServ. On this one, I am using an access_token along with my key, so I wouldn't have that issue.

comment ChatterBox - user script that adds inbox integration to Stack Exchange Chat!
Version 2.1 released today, with a couple of fixes. Some of the error messages were a bit unclear, and there were ways in which I would hide the the inbox/config tab buttons when they should have been shown.

comment Why aren't my application icons being used in the “Top Apps” list?
So... what's the point of entering the data on the "register application" page? Is that used elsewhere?

comment API endpoints do not set Access-Control-Allow-Origin, so CORS requests fail
Awesome. If I had cookies and a way to give them to you, I'd totally give you some.
