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

I know that it's probably unintended that the Primary voting scores were leaked by the API, but I think if you're going to remove it, then at least make it official, so I won't have to wonder if it's just a transient bug.

Anyway, some background: It's possible to collect the score and up/downvote count and scores of each nominee by accessing the post id referred to in the nominations' HTML:

<div id="post-4791995">

They appear on the API as questions. Some time yesterday, however, the up/downvote counts were wiped, and new candidates' nominations that appear after these do not appear in the API any more. I need to know if this is by design, so that I can stop my stats page from polling for useless data in the future.

They were never intended to appear, and this bug fix incidentally removed them from the API.
