comment Rather than remove site from /sites set status close, at least temporarily
But stackusers.com isn't continually checking the API is it?

Right i didn't really understand what you just said, but effectively it's easier for sites to miss out a site than it is to get a state variable wrong? As it's easier to miss something out than to return the wrong value. I have not much idea of trnasient and salient mean or about the example you gave hut that's more for kevin I guess.

Errm, I'd thought it was more important to let the user know that a site has been closed. The user thinks WhTF is gadgets? At least if there was site status=closed for a few weeks (or w/e) an app could have banner (etc) saying that gadgets has been closed.

Thought it would be something like this, just found it a bit strange that the API was ahead of the sites and then behind the sites.

You mean people don't have to login, but surely that means they can only log in from the computer where they created the account? And isn't that ver fragile? With objective-c on iOS it is easy to run javascript on a UIwebView, I've just done and "created" a login page which is the right size. Sure I guess there will be some people with different open ids on different sites, but the majority will use one surely as that's why openID exists

Or rather, like there's /users on normal api sites which list all the users and then theres /users/{id}, on the stackauth there could be sites/{state}

But if you want to remove all the beta sites, then it would be much easier to remove all the sites whose states contain "beta", rather than checking upon each meta whether it's parent site (which as you said could be easier) is in beta and then removing it. Couldn't each normal site have a meta_site (or sub_site) property which is an array, and the array contains what the meta sites currntly do. So in the list of sites you don't get the meta sites at all. The meta sites aren't just linked to the parent, but actaully inside the parent.

Sorry when i said password above I meant OpenID, Surely a webpage can created with a the simple login buttons (etc) of stacksite (which can then be styled/moved by javascript etc), and it just returns what the stackAuth/users/{id}/association does.

Code poet, is that reference to my comment or Kevin's answer? kevin, I mean in the returned results, Gaming Meta's state is linked_meta, there's no way to distinguish between Meta Serverfault and Gaming Meta, in terms of state. Couldn't the gaming Meta have a state like Linked_meta_open_beta or something.
