I'm a 19 year old university student from the UK who is learning my way around the programming world. Interested in physics, electronics and IT as well. My aim in life to get somewhere in programming or become an astrophysicist, and live into 2100 :D

I've made a few tweaks for jailbroken iOS.

comment Can 'api_site_parameter' be added to related_site?
Even better is to have a context field, and have it not only on this route, but things like badge awards as well.

comment Can 'api_site_parameter' be added to related_site?
Surely it would be better just to make related_site have jut two fields, relation and site. Where site is just a normal site type. Then use filters to choose what you want.

comment Relevance value on /similar route
So what is the list sorted on? can't you just make that visible?

comment Relevance value on /similar route
I know but if you query multiple sites, you can compare average (or something like average) relevance.

comment Relevance value on /similar route
I was thinking it would be possible to use this value to determine if another site could be more suited to a question?

comment Why aren't my application icons being used in the “Top Apps” list?
The register application page gets you your API key which allows your app to make many more requests to the API, it also allows you to use API methods that require authentification and the description/app-title/app-icon you enter there is used for the window that users see when they permit your app to access their data. If you make a script which doesn't use te API then you don't need to Fill out the "register application" page. If your app doesn't use the API then usually stack apps is not the place to list it

comment Why does badges/ids/recipients return badges not users?
Oh right I didn't remember that one. Why not make badge.user, into badge.users? That way only one copy of each badge is returned?

comment Increase the pagesize limit from 100
@KevinMontrose, thank you! I can finally move some old code from 1.0 without major changes, though returning all sites if no pagesize is specified would be nice.

comment API is accepting requests from other OAuth domains
I think the only URL outside the registered domain that is accepted is https://stackexchange.com/oauth/login_success, because it's on StackExchange it's trusted already.
