I think that it would be valuable for any developers wanting to contribute to the site to have an API to work with.
The reason why I'm putting this in official site suggestions instead of building the API myself is due to how I don't have full access to site resources. An example of what I'm talking about is at the URL /xmlhttp.php, which plays a critical role in allowing users to gain shoutbox tokens. The problem lies in how the x-frame-options header on this resource is "SAMEORIGIN," meaning that you are only able to access it through RaidForums itself, as opposed to performing an xmlhttp request from another site. In essence, there is no current possible way to embed the shoutbox into an application or external site. This is preventing any and all progress on what could be decent apps for RF.

If this isn't possible, at least make it possible for devs to access site resources externally
Developers wishing to contribute things such as apps to the site should contact me and they would probably get an API for whatever their app needs as long as they prove themselves worth the time of me implementing such a thing, anyways besides the sameorigin headers are there for obvious security measures.
