I am using this API to get users info sorting by last_modified date, https://api.stackexchange.com/docs/users#page=1&pagesize=100&order=asc&sort=modified&filter=!9YdnSBVWs&site=stackoverflow&run=true. I have three questions:

  1. What is the meaning of last_modified_date? Users updated his/her user profile or name?
  2. The filter is returning all the fields, but the API does not return the last_modified_date field.
  3. Sorting by last_modified_date will always give me some errors even I did not call many times. However, sorting by creation_date is working great.
  • What errors, exactly? I don't see anything obviously wrong. Commented Dec 25, 2015 at 5:00
