comment Please add “total votes on questions” and “total votes on answers” into /user/{id} API
Other than tracking badge progress what benefit do: creation_date, last_access_date, up_vote_count, down_vote_count have? I like statistics and this is just another one that is nice to have, are there and real adverse reasons not to include the above methods in the API?

@KevinMontrose Oh I see, the index is linked to the /search? Where as /questions is linked to the actual questions posted before and after they are indexed? - I've been using the Last.fm API recently and as such I'm used to instantaneous polling from data submission to API serving.

@KevinMontrose Then how come I get very different results with /search than /questions, Like on /search I get a range of delays from about 5-15minutes after a question is posted, where as on the /questions route, with an appropriately dated fromdate I can get questions seconds old, Where as on /search even with the fromdate calculated the same way - not the same results (please don't change this - it will break instant notifiers like Newt)

@KevinMontrose I would like to know that too, Why is /questions more "live" than the /search method?

@KevinMontrose - It seems that my only option then is to use /questions get ALL questions in the last minute or so and then filter them as the caching is killing the updating of my results?
