I chatted with Roan on freenode briefly, where he said he thought I was
making a valid request in the right way.. So that gave me some hope to play
What I've found is that if I request rcprop for user and userid, then
things seem to work. But if I only request userid, then no worky:
Only difference is not requesting "user" in rcprop.
Since I don't really care if I get (or don't get) user handles, I'm happy
to put that in my request for now. So I can continue developing the
application. But it does seem like a bug. I took the liberty of filing a
bug - https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62301
If that's not appropriate just let me know and I'll close it.
Thanks and all input welcome!

I'm new to the api and this list, but I really appreciate that it's there.
I'm trying to create what I thought would be a simple query: "List all
recent changes of all pages, but don't show anon, minor or bot changes"
In particular, I want the pageid, page title and userid associated with
each change. Nice to have pre/post page size too. I've got the query
working in my codebase, and on the wikimedia api sandbox:
But even with what I think is the correct "rcshow" values, I still get
anon edits - both in the sandbox and on the live
In fact in some ways it seems like I'm *only* seeing anon posts. Any
thoughts as to what's going on? Am I misunderstanding how the API works?
Thanks for any input!
