How to get total visited days and consecutives of an user?

You cannot get the days visited, nor consecutive, information for a user because that is private information(Poster is SE representative). Stack Exchange is supposed to be about the content, not the ...

(Should we) add [Staff] labels to staff member flairs?

Tada! πŸŽ‰ This was an easy change on our end, it turns out we already had functionality to turn this on for individual sites. Our code doesn't define Stack Apps as a Meta site so Stack Apps doesn't get ...

Is there a way to get a user's account ID given his site's user ID?

The 2.3 SE API has a account_id property on the shallow_user object, which is the user's SE account ID, so you can get the user's SE account number from any request which returns that object as part ...

Can I fetch Stack Overflow users by location in Stack Exchange API

It's not possible (short of fetching all users and filtering yourself). The API simply does not offer that query. For alternatives, see the Data Explorer (SEDE): https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/...

How to use shallow_user?

You don't use shallow_user; several routes (can) return it. If you want the reputation for a user, you would typically use the /users/{ids} route. EG:           /2.2/users/...

Please provide an API "flair"-data call (`/associated` route is inadequate)
