v1-v3 APIs have been deprecated

Don't worry, these APIs are deprecated, but they won't be shut off until 2017, at the earliest. Questions? Contact

All new development with APIs should use the newest version of our API: /1. API /1 is based on RESTful principles, is secured by OAuth 2.0, and provides JSON messages, search, pagination, sorting, and filtering.
