API Question

So, what is the difference between these twobits when creating an API key? What information do they give access to?
Private Information: [all] [none]
- CharacterInfo [?]

Public Information: [all] [none]
- CharacterInfo [?]

And why do the question mark links next to them not lead to a wiki page but to the same Create Key page?

Unfortunately, that doesn't provide a clear answer to the question asked. :-)

The API documentation is still written based on old style keys (references to "full key" and "limited key").

Assaj - try both, let us know, update the wiki page. :-)

I will make a MAJOR guess

The medals and decorations you can make Public or Private right?. Maybe it is this?.

The Character Info API (without a supplied API key) will return the same info on a character as tâ™ he EVE client would show. With a limited API key it will add total skill points as well as the current ship you are in and its name. When a full API key is supplied, you account balance and your last known location will also be added to the response.

The difference is the same difference between full and limited had.
