uhh wait, so lye is gone? :(
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:33
he's avoiding answering that, so we still don't know where lye went
i'm behind what stephen is pursuing, but this also raises some major questions

@codemasher
Dec 11 2017 02:36
pretty sure that anet people aren't allowed to talk internals like employment status, esp in ingame chat, but i'd be happy for an "official" statement over here then
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:36
yes, that's true
it happened last time with lye too, tivac was just saying that he was taking a leave of absence, nothing more

i mean, we miss @lye - not just because API stuff
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:37
yeah

In terms of the API, it raises the following questions for me:
1) Will we have some sort of a dev community manager that handles communication between us and the gameplay programmers, if there won't be a dedicated API dev?
2) How will the API evolve when the baton is passed to the gameplay programmers (aka new endpoints)?
3) How long will it take for this system to be ready, and what will happen to the API in the mean time?

Probably more, but this is just on top of my head

The GitHub repo really is a nice place to track API development, it would be a waste if no one would look at it anymore :(

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:43
Yes

@Eearslya
Dec 11 2017 02:43
it'd suck if they went back to only api subforum

This sounds like a good moment to migrate to Discord and leave Gitter behind :smirk:

@Eearslya
Dec 11 2017 02:43
did we ever make one?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:44
No
not that I know of
I tried having lye to be on gw2e's discord, but he declined because he already had lots of chats and stuff to keep track of
Which is fair
also, i just looked at the sidebar... since when is wafflebot[bot] a thing
i completely forgot we had a waffle.io thingy

@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:49
Hmm... it would be nice to have someone (possibly SCW) to officially communicate what the API plans are :(
Maybe it isn't quite ready yet and just an idea

uhh, not only that but probably most of the current API features originated from there (or here) :o

@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:53
yeah, you mean proposals made by other people?
smiley
@codemasher
Dec 11 2017 02:53
yea
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 02:53
it goes both ways yeah
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 03:06
urgh
that's so confusing
this is almost like a generic library for any programming language, instead of a good webapi
maybe i'm just used to seeing REST like structures
smiley
@codemasher
Dec 11 2017 03:09
the audioscrobbler API existed before there were any API standards
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 03:09
time for a newer version then
smiley
@codemasher
Dec 11 2017 03:10
i hope they're not going to kill it off completely tho
still waiting...
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 03:14
smells like valve time

Dec 11 2017 03:15
the worst thing is that there's currently no way to manage your library (*execept deleting single scrobbles via web)
currently = for like 3 years now

I made one https://discord.gg/zqeHCEg a few weeks ago, but never posted it here

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 11 2017 14:03
yes he did @Coffee4cr

@codemasher
Dec 11 2017 15:55
i've never seen that much snow melting that fast
(there's a reason why i didn't even bother to change the summer wheels on my car...)
