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

Reputation gain from edits to tag wikis appear through the API; the API reports them as answers, but fetching them via the /answers route does not work.

Case in point:

  • My accepted edit (+2 rep)
  • My reputation report via the API:

      "user_id": 23,
      "post_id": 15885,
      "post_type": "answer",
      "positive_rep": 2,
      "negative_rep": 0,
      "on_date": 1296727329
  • The reply for /answers/15885:

      "total": 0,
      "page": 1,
      "pagesize": 30,
      "answers": []

(/questions/15885 also gives no results.)

I tagged 1.0 because apparently a new version of the API, 1.1, is going live "soon." – badp Feb 3 '11 at 10:43
interesting tweet discovery! I wonder why Jeff seems to prefer leaking such API relevant information elsewhere rather than announcing it here first (or at least as well) ... – Steffen Opel Feb 3 '11 at 11:46
@Steffen I think the problem is SOIS iterates too fast to keep us in the loop :D – badp Feb 3 '11 at 11:51

Reputation gains from suggested edits are no longer returned by that route.

Ah, the joys of backwards compatibility :) – badp Feb 3 '11 at 20:37
