I just started using the API but I think i hit a pretty big snag. I can't seem to get decent filtering on my requests... The example in the docs:
http://api.giantbomb.com/characters/?api_key=ABCDEF123456&gender=M&sort=birth_date&format=xmlActually doesn't work?? I'm actually trying to retrieve a list of games currently set to release on the current month, but neither filtering nor sorting work on those fields. The documentation is kind of conflicting about it, saying on the individual resources that only a set of filters are allowed, but at the top they mention that example about filtering characters on gender.
It's a real shame that these little roadbumps are in the otherwise awesome API. This might be a dealbreaker for me, and I imagine it's hurt the progress of a few other developers for what I can see in the forums.
Any ideas if/when we might see these implemented??
