Can the API tell me topics which have a reply from an employee?

I'm trying to find a way to retrieve topics which only have an "official reply" which could mean from an employee.

Is there is any easier way to do this other than retrieve all replies and check the employee field on each reply? I'm going to end up generating a lot of traffic just to know if an employee has replied.

In our YouView forum, we have Official Replies that are not from employees of YouView, when the Community Admins deem a user Reply sufficiently definitive, and we have replies by employees which are not designated as Official Replies.

And peer-to-peer replies that, even though not designated as official, nevertheless satisfy the query that has been posted.

Which employees sometimes bless with a Like, a small seal of approval going in the direction of an Official Reply, but stopping short of that designation.

All of which might put a spanner in the works of your strategy :-(

So, ignoring the how for the minute, what is it that you are trying to achieve, exactly?
