This a preview/dev/debug version of our app at: Microsoft, internal use, Stack Exchange assistant.

A second post is needed as that's the only way to get a second key (Best practice keeps dev and beta apps separate from production).

: the key/registration system needs an ability to issue separate main and dev keys to the same post/app-registration.

  • What do you need to know about our application to avoid being flagged as "stale"? :) – Watchtower Feb 12 at 15:54
  • @BrockAdams - We have a different app for each primary environment of our solution. (Dev, Preview, Prod) Is the preference that we have only a single app for each environment? – Porschiey Feb 12 at 16:16
  • @Porschiey, Stack Apps is not really structured for WIP apps or development. Each [app] post is supposed to announce/explain a user ready product. ... We've been making allowances for dev, with things like the [placeholder] system, but you still must follow the guidelines, especially these guidelines as well as the faq. – Brock Adams Feb 12 at 18:43
  • @BrockAdams - to clarify, you'd like us to use one app for all environments, and simply remove the (placeholder) when our tool enters into "user ready" (AKA production) - correct? – Porschiey Feb 12 at 18:55
  • @Porschiey, that is my preference, but the community stance is developing, and keeping dev and production separate is best practice. However, a [placeholder] app is not a production app, by definition. ... ... Refer again to the guidelines linked above. Also, personally, I see no harm in keeping separate posts for say a main versus beta app -- since that is currently the only way to get separate keys. – Brock Adams Feb 12 at 19:02
  • @BrockAdams - Thanks Brock. We'll keep two of the three apps and their posts here. One will say (placeholder/in dev) and the other will remove the "placeholder" text). Would that be satisfactory? We'd rather not be marked as stale. – Porschiey Feb 12 at 20:12
  • @Porschiey, it's not enough to just remove the "placeholder". You must also fill out the question to make a proper post. Again, see the references linked above. – Brock Adams Feb 12 at 20:38
  • @BrockAdams sure - can do – Porschiey Feb 12 at 20:41
  • @BrockAdams updated that linked post. – Watchtower Feb 12 at 20:47
