    sounds interesting. Not sure where this will go, but if it means better mods then it seems like a good diea

    Not really designed for helping other mods, it's a Web API.

    I'm not sure if it's ideal having it in a public repository due to it being used with nulled scripts etc.

    On a more positive note, good luck with it :)

    It'd end up on a warez site just as quickly if it was posted here.

    I'd rather have it open source with multiple contributors then locked to me. As forsaken said if someone wanted it all they would have to do is ask someone with a license.

    Could someone explain exactly what this is and an example of how it is used?

    Well, so far I doubt it has been used for much but it has alot of potential, like you could potentially build a mobile app around it, or just anything that accesses your forum remotely/not via your normal url/browser.

    Nice...so theoretically with this I could make a standalone html page and have forms populated with data from my forum?

    That's not a general all purpose Web API though, and I don't see any security checks ever. You couldn't use that publicly without exposing private areas of your forum

    Sure. There's probably better ways to do that but the API can handle that.

    Lol your talking to a noob right now...the best way is the one that works. :) (in other words I have no clue what would be a better way to do it nor did I even think it was possible at least for me to do myself.)

    Like to use this to build an ajax module on another part of a site to show things like recent threads. A list of URL params would be really helpfull, don't see one on GIT anywhere

    Is this project dead? (no code upgrade since may)

    What type of API will this be? Will it be RESTful or?
