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{id}/answers (it won't linkify properly!):

"title": {
  "description": "title of this post, in plaintext",
  "values": "string",
  "optional": false,
  "suggested_buffer_size": 200
} (for example):

  "total": 1,
  "page": 1,
  "pagesize": 30,
  "answers": [
      "answer_id": 4073003,
      "accepted": false,
      "answer_comments_url": "/answers/4073003/comments",
      "question_id": 4072963,
      "owner": {
        "user_id": 21755,
        "user_type": "registered",
        "display_name": "Paul",
        "reputation": 7231,
        "email_hash": "8d1dc85bd2d8ed3a2074b9728fbdaa55"
      "creation_date": 1288645283,
      "last_activity_date": 1288645283,
      "up_vote_count": 0,
      "down_vote_count": 0,
      "view_count": 0,
      "score": 0,
      "community_owned": false

As you can see, there's no title attribute in there. This is breaking Droidstack. Please help!

This has been fixed.

In hindsight, it's not really correct to return title on answers... so this will probably go away in the next version.

Kind of depends, really. I see how it would be useful to have it returned, once, so you can title an answer collection. On every answer its pretty overkill. Hmmm.

Yeah, I thought that, too, at some point. But since now Droidstack is powered by StackWrap4J which throws an exception when there's no title attribute, it was kind of a blocker :) thanks! – Felix Nov 2 '10 at 11:29
Actually, it makes a lot of sense for calls such as /questions/{id};{id}/answers. I don't think you'll be able to take it out :) – Felix Nov 2 '10 at 12:04
