This API method has been removed as of Jul 16 '10. The original question is preserved below for posterity.

It is not clear what a "list" of {tags} looks like.

Does this parameter follow the semicolon-separated list format of the id parameter? Is it a comma separated list?

@phsr and good riddance. – Sky Sanders Jul 16 '10 at 1:15


Currently {tags} is a space delimited set of tag names. It really ought to be a semicolon delimited set.

So, the next code push will switch to the semicolon behavior. The documentation will be updated to reflect this.

This code has been deployed now.

that is good. I can now push tags into the params ctor for that route as it is essentially the 'id'. – Sky Sanders Jun 2 '10 at 6:40
The documentation for the /questions route isn't clear on what the delimiter is. It just says "List of tags questions must have" So the delimiter is officially changed to semicolon? – lfoust Jul 20 '10 at 6:22
@lfoust - yes, the semicolon is the universal unordered set delimiter. – Kevin Montrose Jul 20 '10 at 13:01
are you going to update the docs to reflect this? – lfoust Jul 20 '10 at 15:45
