Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Take this example:;3182016/timeline

Would it not make sense to have the question_id as a parameter on each timeline object? It makes the timeline api pretty useless if you pass more than one question id does it not?

I would like to build a monitoring system for questions and batching up requests to the timeline api seemed the most sensible way to achieve this.

Bah, it says something about the usage /questions/{id}/timeline has gotten that this oversight wasn't spotted until the day before 1.0 release.... But its a pretty major one. [status-planned], will happen today. – Kevin Montrose Jul 8 '10 at 20:06

This has been done.

question_id is now found on every element in the returned set.

Updated documentation.

Presumably the last change before 1.0.
