Re: Bug: watchers always same as stargazers_count in API /user/starred

Hi @conghaonet,

 

That's expected behavior since "starring" was called "watching" in the past, so to prevent breaking applications -- that hasn't changed when starring was introduced.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for being here, sharing, and keeping our community awesome!
Best,
AndreaG
