Still loads to do though :>

Don't mind the ugly generator looks, still working on stylizing it.
I plan on adding caching, if I ever learn how to.

Say some guys app tracks names primarily (me, it cycles through logs for usernames not UIDs and editing the username to UID would use way too much in resources and would break logging, unless you want logs like <39283> Hi there greg) it'd make migrating a user from the old username to the new much easier/faster. As for the user profile, a quick view of source tells me I'm dumb and I need to hover over the username, didn't know that. Whoops.

Not as easy as that seeing how my stuff comes directly from IRC with no middleman for conversion. If there was a version of Bancho that used UID; I'd use it and create a postprocessor for converting the UID to real name but its a pain creating a preprocessor to convert to UID and a postprocessor to convert from for human readable format especially seeing the quantity people talk in all channels and the amount of API calls that'll be, even with caching it'll still be heavy.

Don't share your key. Request your users to enter their own API key. It's as simple as that.

That is one option. One that I have been thinking about at that. However, to get an API key you have to apply for access. The form on which you do so is quite obviously meant for developers only. Really, what I'd like is to have Peppy's opinion on what to do for this one.

Well then, I'll try...
k : "my_api_key",
b : '1026729',
u : "Wilchq",
m : 0,
type : "string"
If you specify the "u" parameter, it will return empty unless that player has an score in that map. Remove that parameter.

But the server receives an empty response. Where error in my query?
