How many downvotes have I ever cast?

Including votes on since deleted questions?

Is there a way to find out?

Different from my other stats request today, this one is out of vain curiosity. – Pëkka Sep 19 '11 at 8:53
I was under the impression that the number of votes (up / down) shown on user profiles included those against deleted posts. – DMA57361 Sep 19 '11 at 8:57
@DMA nope - see Eeeek! I'm missing 650 downvotes, and 300 upvotes – Pëkka Sep 19 '11 at 8:58
Ah. For some reason I was thinking the change happened the other way around. >.< – DMA57361 Sep 19 '11 at 8:59
Do you accept too freaking many/less as an answer? – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 19 '11 at 9:01
@Padded I was hoping to get a bit more of a specific reply. :) - – Pëkka Sep 19 '11 at 9:02
Do you mean "now" or "ongoing"? If the latter... for what purpose? (actually, that kinda applies either way) – Marc Gravell Sep 19 '11 at 10:20
@Marc ongoing; I mean all votes ever cast. As to why - as said, vain curiosity - the desire to know how many questions I downvoted have been deleted. If it's a lot of work to find out, don't bother. (The other stats request is serious though - I'd much appreciate feedback on that, as I think too many bad questions are "getting away" because they fail to accumulate the necessary close votes.) – Pëkka Sep 19 '11 at 10:34
up vote 4 down vote accepted

You've cast 756 down votes on Meta at the time of this posting. To mess around with the request, check out the API console. The vote counts returned by the API are inclusive of votes on deleted content, as you'll note by the fact that the respective vote counts are higher than those displayed in your profile.

Oh cool, thanks! That already helps a lot. – Pëkka Jan 4 '12 at 12:36
Aye. You can also get your full list of associated accounts via the API, but it seems that it's not possible (well, at least from what I could see in the console options) to create a filter that will return the associated account list with the additional vote count data (so you're stuck querying each site individually, if you want a grand total). – Tim Stone Jan 4 '12 at 12:42
