17:32 Darkman802 What's the best practice on returning a 404 when it could be for different resources. For example, a link such as /servers/{server_id}/users/{user_id} the 404 could either be for the server or user. I would assume you would just send a message in the body telling which one?
17:36 trygvis there is only one resource referenced
17:37 asdf` Darkman802, right; your 404 responses can contain possible actions just like your 200 responses. So, your 404 response can have a link to a 'server users' resource if that server exists, or to a 'all servers' resource if that server doesn't exist; you need to think if that is useful, or maybe if you can add more useful transitions there
17:38 trygvis I doubt you'll find many 404 responses with lots of info/links in it
17:38 trygvis as a machine you're usually limited to backtrack to where you got the URL from and try again or fail
17:39 trygvis going back is probably only useful if it came from the cache
17:41 Darkman802 Thanks, I'm new to rest, so I'm still trying to get my thinking inline with it.

19:08 CentaurWarchief guys, which code you would use for resource not found in third-party services? 404?
19:09 CentaurWarchief let's say that you're scraping stuff which might not exists if you've provided wrong data for the job
