1) The next_page URL are missing the /api/ part and does not work
2) The count parameter does not work

We are moving away from the www.geni.com/api to api.geni.com - last weeks release has the setting for switching the URLs prematurely turned on. The new schema will be available in the near future and will be announced in this forum. We will support both URL schemas until all apps migrate to using api.geni.com

Which count parameter do you refer to? The count is not supported across all API calls. In some cases it is very expensive to calculate the size of the paginated list and we deliberately omit the count.

To be able to give some user progress when for example loading max family I tried to start with https://www.geni.com/api/user/max-family?count=true to find how many pages that will be loaded and to be able to load multiple pages in parallel when that number is large.

I do however see that the count is useless for something else since in the theory the count may change during the load process, so it is better to test if you have a next_page link to see that you got all pages.

The https://api.geni.com/user/max-family redirect by the way to a Page not found

Will platform/oauth URL's like https://www.geni.com/platform/oauth/validate_token?access_token=xxx change too?
