Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The problem with email_hash seems to be fixed, but now display_name is not getting returned in some cases.

For example: This Super User /users/{id} query returns a display_name, but the corresponding part of the SAuth /users/{id}/associated query does not (some of the other sites do have it).

This is because the user hasn't specified a username on those sites yet. The name you see on SuperUser, for example, is somehow derived from his/her OpenID.

and @Kevin: I need to fix my code to handle that. The user must have removed his username. It worked yesterday. Why does the Super User /users/{id} query for this user have a display_name field that's not carried into /users/{id}/associated? In other words, why is it in one place but not the other? –  Dennis Williamson Jul 27 '10 at 23:19
