Matt (mattcurtis) | 18 comments I've noticed a few `.xml` API endpoints have become `endpoint?format=xml`. In this regard the API documentation is outdated and incorrect: https://www.goodreads.com/api/index

Much as I love Goodreads, the API is one of the most neglected parts of the site, which is a shame as it would only make GR and even better platform for users.

Examples:

- I'm getting a 401 authorization error on the endpoint `quotes/new?format=xml` (was `quotes?format=xml `). Neither seem to be working. Unsure if GET or POST.
- `author/show.xml ` no longer seems to be working, is now `author/show/xxx?format=xml` (works).

Am I going nuts, or are the APIs just really inconsistent? Was this announced anywhere?
