I'm trying to build a notification service that tracks some stackoverflow tag and push updates to some API

let's say we have the following feed url:


What I noticed is that if a user provides some comment to question (not answer) then the 'updated' field of entry wasn't updated. So I don't know how to understand that some user provided a comment to answer.

Do you have any ideas?

  • Well, you can screen-scrape. Other than that, I'm not aware of any mechanism for this. Second-class citizens, etc, etc, etc. – Nathan Tuggy Jan 15 '16 at 23:50
  • @NathanTuggy you mean to check each entry's page and screen scrap? Well, yes, it's a possible solution, but not optimal – Rubycon Jan 18 '16 at 8:23
