    steffen.opel got a reaction from RaymondDelay in How much publicity is currently desired for the City Index API initiative?   
    Are we currently operating in kind of a private beta mode or is it no problem (or even desired) to spread the word already, if there happens to be a respective opportunity?
    I’m asking due to the Area 51 Webservice APIs proposal, which just entered its commitment phase:
    The proposal obviously covers a lot of topics relevant here as well – participating there early could gain some attention for the City Index API initiative, on the other hand it might draw from our still scarce resources right now
     
    Chances/Risks of the Webservice APIs proposal
    I’m still entirely undecided myself, whether all these micro stack exchange sites within overlapping areas will turn out to be useful or not; I see the need for dedicated communities in highly specialized areas, but in general I’d probably prefer tag/filter based approaches within larger sites (currently – this is really a delicate balance).
    To that end I’m sceptical, that the proposal will be successful at all, i.e. it might not gain critical mass to go public or simply get sacked by the powers that be – Webservice APIs is listed as a candidate in Merging Season indeed!

    steffen.opel got a reaction from tonyyfrajw in What are the targeted minimum platform requirements for API client library implementations?   
    To properly judge implementation design options (in contrast to the HTTP/Json API design itself), the initial minimum platform requirements should be specified/documented. For example, I noticed that JsonClient currently targets .NET 4 and JsonClient.Silverlight Silverlight 4 respectively – does this mean these will be the minimum supported targets for the time being indeed, i.e. .NET 3.5 will not be supported and all .NET 4 goodies are available for the implementation?
    Similar questions exist for other platforms like ActionScript and Java of course, e.g. will Java 6 be required etc.

    steffen.opel got a reaction from MitchDimoulakis in Why does updating a comment disable Markdown syntax?   
    I tried to fix a typo within my comment to David’s answer on How do I get started with CIAPI.CS – after saving the edit the emphasis applied was lost and only the Markdown syntax (‘_’) showed up (replaced with quote signs now instead).
    Any ideas how to work around this, or is this simply a Shapado bug?

    steffen.opel got a reaction from GaleDouet in How do I delete a comment?   
    I tried to delete a comment of mine (as a work around regarding Why does updating a comment disable Markdown syntax?) and haven’t found a way to do so – presumably this simply isn’t enabled currently or is this feature lacking in Shapado indeed (it seems odd to encourage users creating empty comments as a work around if need be …)?
