@IFTTT I made a recipe that's clobbering @Pinboard tags for preexisting bookmarks. Is that a problem with the Pinboard API, do you think?

@20gnd you're probably not re-submitting the existing tags. The API will replace the entire bookmark on update

@Pinboard Thanks. Had a feeling. I'll see what their devs say. It may be too "expensive" for them to query preexisting tags, dunno.

@20gnd can I back up a second and ask what you're trying to do?

@Pinboard Sure, but I don't think it's a problem on your end... FeedBurner to tweet from a pinboard.in/u:user/t:tag RSS feed, then… (cont.)

@Pinboard …then an @IFTTT recipe that saves tweeted links to Pinboard, specifying several tags (to record the origin of the links). (cont.)

@Pinboard The @IFTTT recipe overwrites the tags and notes. The notes, I halfway expected that; was hoping the tags would append to existing.

@20gnd @Pinboard right now we blindly add new bookmarks. If that bookmark already exists then any tags/notes get overwritten.

@IFTTT sounds like the correct behavior. Seems what people want is a create-or-update API call. Also, what on earth is your business model?

@Pinboard create or update would be great. Would save us the check for a marks existence before creating. Premium accounts in the works!

@IFTTT I'll see what I can do. The current API call is retarded but was necessary for backwards compatibility with the delicious api
