a reply to a comment on the General Rambling search site on api 1 year and 1 month ago
Hi. The API is for Instant Answers only so doesn't include regular results or site-specific search. This is because we don't have the rights to share our search results in an API.

There's more information about this here: https://duckduckgo.com/api

Hi. Thanks for submitting the !bang updates.
We get hundreds of requests for new and updated !bangs so it takes a long time to go through them all. Yours should be processed but unfortunately I'm not sure when.

Problem solved! Apparently it was created for the 46th anniversary of the premiere of "2001: Space Odyssey". I've updated the logos page: https://duck.co/help/settings/holiday-lo...

Thanks for reporting Choca.

Hi Christophe.That's right, the DuckDuckHack developer forum, and the duck.co community pages don't use the same login system, although they do both accept GitHub for authentication.

Hi Choca,

Well spotted! I'm not sure when that was used but I'll try to find out and update the holiday logo list. Thanks!

Hi duckduckian,

If you go to the IA page for any Instant Answer you've created or contributed to, the IA traffic is shown at the bottom of the page. You have to be logged in, by the way.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Please improve triggering 1 year and 2 months ago
Hi duckduckian,

Thanks for the suggestion. I like the idea of removing the need to type lots of similar-but-slightly different phrases, however sometimes we should accept different ordering of words. In your example, "pokemon go status" would trigger but "status pokemon go" would not, but it should. We could accept any order, but then "go status pokemon" would trigger when ideally it should not.

So as well as specifying accepted keywords, the developer would probably have to specify accepted word orders as well. That adds complexity which makes me wonder if there's an advantage overall. Although just listing all potential phrases is tedious, the benefit is that it's simple for new developers to understand.

Anyway, I'm not dismissing the suggestion - just considering how we'd handle various use cases.
