Screenshot processing outage? Uploads are coming back with an error occurred, but the website and API otherwise seem fine.

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.

A tribute to Dr Stephen Hawking: Dark XM didn't call for us, but no harm in throwing a link star anyway! We focused our efforts on Hawking's room in Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge.

@BardofEly, @pal1664, @Tafkawac, @ZagreusTheThird and I were on the scene, having spent the early afternoon clearing up the routes into city centre. With relatively little preparation, we spent some time acquiring keys, then put the plan into motion.

We set off at 3:20pm, passed 100 links in 30 minutes, and reached a total of 109 at our 4pm "checkpoint"... before flipping, refilling with link amps, and throwing a good proportion of it again.

API keys are tied to agent accounts, and grant access to any groups they're a member of. For me, some of those are private and rather large, and should a key be compromised in a project for a small group, it unintentionally provides access to the remaining groups. It also means for a shared project, I'd have to share my personal API key with other collaborators.

Any thoughts on group-specific API keys, either managed by a single agent or accessible to all group admins, only providing access to the /groups endpoints? Alternatively, one could register a second account that just sits in a single group, with its own API key (at the cost of potentially stealing someone's IGN)?

Bit confused with the group refresh endpoint:

GET /groups/$group/refresh HTTP/1.1
AS-Key: $key

HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
{"error": "type can only be 'now', 'week', 'month' or 'custom'"}

As far as I can tell, it doesn't take a type parameter? I'm assuming this is equivalent to the "Start refresh custom data" in the group admin panel, which only applies to custom anyway?

Happy Sojourner day, am I doing this right?

Minor bug report: submitting the preferences form by Enter key resets your API key, because that's the first submit button in the form. It would be better if they were placed after the main submit button, so as not to clobber existing keys.

(There's also a broken </fieldset> on line 122 -- can't remember if they contain submit button actions or not; if so then that also may be the cause.)

Can we get an API endpoint to invite users to a group? Would be useful to automate channelling local community members into a stats group.

Is there a limit on how many data points can show on the graph? My ALL graph is coming up empty, as is anything longer than 2015-08-05 to today in CUSTOM, but I can still do e.g. 2015-01-01 to 2017-01-01 without issue. Export page says there are 1078 points.

Sitrep: Operation Blue Badger Trail -- 23/04/2017

In the small hours of Saturday morning, Cambridge was coated by a rather ugly green field, much to our dismay. But after the last round of key swaps during the day, we were prepared for our turn come the next morning.

06:15: @pal1664 kicks things off early, taking down the last friendly blockers to the north, before making way to the southern anchor.
08:00: @Wendex1 clears a path through the eastern fields.
08:30: All three teams are assembled at their starting points, and the first field goes up -- 93,200 MU!
09:00: Power issues with @BardofEly's scanner leaves the east team hindered for keys, but that won't stop us.
09:05: The illuminator badgers start rolling in!
09:15: Cambridge is covered by 12 layers, totalling around 1.1 million MU. Unfortunately the alarm had been raised, and the current north-west anchor is contested by ENL @TheManeEvent.
09:20: Layers going down, blockers going up, we prime our secret weapon. @Tafkawac is unleashed, tailing TME to clear the offending links, whilst the rest of the team proceed with the plan.
09:45: @G1zza captures the 7th illuminator badger.
10:00: Checkpoint!
10:05: The outermost field goes up, 96.9K MU. 30 layers were thrown in total, of which an estimated 19 layers are left standing, influencing 1.9M MU.
10:20: ENL @Bellinghman arrives down south, and is given a run for his money by @pal1664.
10:50: ENL @FatmanRich starts clearing our efforts over to the east.
11:05: The last of the fields are down.
11:15: @Tafkawac finally gets a few fields in. A whole 75 MU of them.
12:00: We congregate back in Cambridge for Sunday lunch. Of course, a Cambridge Resistance op wouldn't be complete without the finest cake from master baker @Rainitium.

Many thanks to all involved. RES agents on the scene:
@CamSenji (gained Gold Illuminator)
@G1zza (gained Onyx Illuminator)
@iceycarter (gained Gold Illuminator)
@NeverSeenByDay (gained Gold Illuminator)
@pal1664 (gained Gold Illuminator)
@Terrance (gained Platinum Illuminator)
@ZagreusTheThird (gained Silver Illuminator)

Special thanks(?) to @TheManeEvent for bringing some questionable excitement to the, err, main event...
