Hi Evgeny, if I understand it right, a high reputation allows users to moderate other users posts. If a user is able to reach this reputation level within 1 hour by posting tons of replies, it's a serious threat for other users contributions. Daily capping makes sure he spent *some* time on askbot.
2010-05-22 04:12:06 -0500 answered a question What features should be in the API of a Q&A forum?

For a read only API the Yahoo! Answers API

probably is a good start:

  • questionSearch
  • getByCategory (getByTag in askbot)
  • getQuestion
  • getByUser

A read/write API could encourage a android or iPhone app developer to write a mobile client on top of that. Sth. like

  1. questionSearch (to check if it was already asked),
  2. authenticate,
  3. postQuestion,
  4. getQuestion (for the answers) and
  5. vote/rate/choose best answer

This is crucial for a reputation system that from a certain point allows you to edit other peoples contributions.
