    API

    Can we get this enabled? Rushy's thread about breaking his 20 post per day habit got me thinking about some amusing graphs that I could generate with the API...

    Not sure what API means. Should I be worried?
    JoshC and Toby like this.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Possibly.

    Edit: At it's simplest, the API is basically a way to automate the search function. You could ask it to return every user, and the percentage of their posts that contained certain words etc. Can do lots of interesting things

    Application Programming Interface.

    Trademe has one for example - here's the API call for listings in Auckland for Tikka T3s. You could do fun things like filter the users to only show people who had also recently purchased a latte machine

    It's just all the information in the auctions but in text form.

    Anyway, the forum software that NZHS is running on has one, and I want it enabled I would have just PM'd, but my brain has turned to mush and I can't remember the username of the guy who runs the server.

    Id be pissed if I was searching for something and came up with that

    But if you make it an option that I cant click by mistake,and then you come up with some amusing stats then I would have no objection.

    Nah, it's something that you have to specifically look for. Can't get to it by clicking.

    Well, this link should (if I've read the documentation right) return all of my user details. You won't find that link anywhere on the forum though. You have to make it up yourself. Usually you would write a computer program or web app and use it to go to the link, then use the stuff that's returned to make a graph or something.
