Hey guys!

We’re in the process of revamping our key system in order to alleviate certain problems it causes for our APIs. We’re also working on improvements for APIs and corresponding documentation. The full list of changes will be disclosed at a later time.

In the meantime, we are adjusting the anonymous limit to be the same as the registered key limit on all three community APIs. This means that keys are no longer a requirement. Everyone that doesn’t currently have a key or is in the key queue no longer needs one. All previously issued keys will still work, and you should be able to continue using them without any problems. Should you run into complications with previously issued keys, feel free to send us a message.

We have a lot of features planned for our APIs in the coming year. Keep sending us your feedback, questions and ideas!

What's an API?

Unfortunately I know my posts show up on many Blue post trackers, but this is a post in the community platform API forum, only meant for people interested in using our community web APIs. This doesn't affect the game or client in any way.

As an actual answer to the question: a way to get at the data found on our community sites so that users can make fan sites and web apps using profile data.

Hi Petratryn,

i have no idea what the meaning of this is and what there is upcoming in the future.
I was proud that i can use they key and that helped me the years to show up which one requests that are from the server ip.

It was like a ID card for me to avoid blacklisting by mistakes.
You said our keys will work for the future so ok.. i wil use it without changes.
But i will be truth,- such changes scare me like hell.

We are only upping the limit on anonymous keys to save ourselves some work while we improve the system. We'd rather not spend time manually assigning new keys (part of the reason this system needs improvement) when we could be spending it working on the new system. This change shouldn't be scary to anyone.

1. I did not see any posts of Straton the last time and i lost his mail adress, can you please provide me a mail adress to get in contact with you? I really would like to give you my IP Adresses of the server...reason is i got a bad feeling..

Second, i wish a deeper contact with the Web and API Team in the future :) is still the best contact point at the moment. Updating the IP address of your server isn't needed at the moment, we're not going to update anything with it and the new system will be self service.

In general we're working on better contact in the future.
