Very nice!

Looks like "title" field in activity feed is not correctly set for CreateTopicComment event. I would expect a discussion title there, but the field is not present in the response.

This is great news Devin!

Every improvement to the API is worth like gold, as it empowers us to build on top of your excellent work and to stand on the shoulder of giants!

As I asked to Phil, do you have plans for further improvements in the (not necessarily near) future?

Looks great Devin !

And SO great to see you are working on the api :-)

Any idea when you guys will add events to the api ?




cool new additions Devin! Now we're rolling--
