It seems whatever GlobalUserPage is doing to show the meta user page isn't coming through to the API. Not entirely sure how that should work.

@Matanya where do you get "this page doesn't exist"?

Deskana renamed this task from clicking on a user name that has a global page coming from meta results in "this page doesn't exist" to clicking on a user name that has a global page coming from meta in the Android app results in "this page doesn't exist" .Jun 27 2015, 5:07 AM

try with the latest alpha.

Oops! I overlooked this bug was about the mobile app...

I don't think the apps should have to know what's going on under the hooks.
Maybe a way should be provided for API users to resolve titles to whatever global page they fall back to.

Let's dupe the other way please so the older task stays open?
