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.

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
