Just wondering if the GI uses the APIto work, it could but it would require a lot of requests (though it won't take up [internet] bandwidth because it's done inside the server cluster (that is hopefully the correct phrasing)
If I were to implement a similar feature using the API would I have to:
- get all users account using stackauth.
- Get users recent activity
- check for activity on all the user's activity (lots of requests)
this sounds to heavy on the API, so possible to have an inbox in the API, like on stackauth?
