Following What should we do about dead listings?, we've started to add obsolete to questions that are 'deprecated, no longer available/supported, or no longer relevant'. However, on the front page…

Remove users' accept rates from the API

The accept rate of users isn't shown on the site since more than 6-8 years. Nevertheless, it's still returned by default on most calls returning user details. It doesn't serve any purpose anymore, …

Get reputation changes across all sites without querying each one individually

I'm looking to make an app that shows your reputation changes throughout the network. /me/reputation-history/full almost accomplishes this, but it's on a per-site basis. I only want one query to ge…

Auto-links to collectives in documentation aren't working

The Collective objects returned by the API, e.g. this method, have a link property that seems to be clickable, just like post and comment IDs in other object types: However, they lead to links lik…

When attempting to edit a post while not having enough reputation, like happened here: API to submit a Suggested Edit, the API returns the following: { "error_id": 407, "error_me…

"is_edited": false or "is_edited": true as an option in the API response

When working with the Stack Exchange API I noticed that there is important data (at least for what I thought to do) not available, whether the question, answer or comment was edited or not: { &qu…

Why does the 'Apps' tab show hot questions and the 'Scripts' tab high scoring questions?

The Stack Apps homepage has two unique tabs which are not present on other sites: Apps and Scripts. There is a slight difference between the two, which is visible upon hovering: That's right, the…

Update Teams API documentation to reflect dependency on tier

The documentation says (emphasis mine): Starting with the release of Stack Overflow For Teams, the Stack Exchange API exposes read-only access to data stored in private Teams. This is slightly ou…

Wouldn't it be nice if we had a Community Bulletin?

Our site is a bit special and different in some places compared to "regular" sites in the Stack Exchange network. For example: We are are both a Meta and a Main site. We have a special A…

Is there a way to increase the contrast of the special highlighting that is applied to the OP of a question?

EDIT: as you can see, the OP is now highlighted a bit more clearly, in 2021! But this may change, or someone might want a more striking contrast. When the Original Poster of a question comments so…

Should we enable Stack Snippets?

A couple of days ago I answered a question about the Stack API. As my answer could be illustrated with a working code example I went ahead to create a Stack Snippet. To my surprise that feature i…
