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.

With 2.2, I've begun implementing some write features in my app. I've started with voting. When you vote on a question on a site that isn't in a users associated accounts, you get the error "The account associated with the access_token does not have a user on the site." That makes sense, but is there a way to add a user to a site with the API? I notice that the official Android app pops up a dialog offering the user a chance to join the site in the same situation. Is that done via a private API?

If this isn't possible, consider this a feature request.

There isn't; from the blog post introducing version 2.2 of the API, "User creation is too sensitive to guarantee stability" – Tim Stone Mar 6 '14 at 17:56
I wouldn't really think of this as "user creation." It's associating an existing user with a new site. – andrewsomething Mar 6 '14 at 18:01
