Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I noticed that a userid is required to run a query; but what if I want to check out a property for all users? For example, if I wanted to find the sum of upvotes for each user, not just myself? Can I do that?

Sure. Assuming you know a bit of SQL, you can do this quite easily. For instance, this query will select the ten users who've cast the most up-votes:

select Top 10 Id as [User Link], UpVotes from Users 
Order By UpVotes desc
