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

As far as I can see the "Recent" Answers shows answers that I have made recently (surprise). I notice that some of those answers have votes applied so I go back and look and sometimes see intersting discussions.

Then I notice that my reputation has increased, but not due to anything on my recent answers. So where was it? Has there been intersting discussion and I missed it?

So any way to get a view of recent "votes" no matter how old the question?

Also, I don't understand when I get notified about comments to my comments. Does that happen? Again I want to not miss an interesting conversation.

Click the little envelope next to your name at the top of the screen:


Then click the little number next to Reputation earned: repnum

That'll take you here, where you can see your recent reputation changes.

Responses to your posts can be found by clicking the number next to Comment responses, but that does not include comments in reply to your comments (unless they're on one of your posts).

Shog, your drop shadows make all of your posts look so pretty! – jjnguy Aug 5 '09 at 20:57
Or other peoples posts I guess. – jjnguy Aug 5 '09 at 20:57
Yes, those are such pretty red X's! ...Maybe I should check again when I'm not behind a proxy. – mmyers Aug 5 '09 at 21:01
@mmyers: your proxy sucks! – Shog9 Aug 5 '09 at 21:13
@Shog9: Kyle Cronin said the same thing (worded differently). – mmyers Aug 5 '09 at 21:21
so many cunning SO features, never noticed that envelope! – djna Aug 5 '09 at 21:31
red x's are not acceptable. – Troggy Aug 5 '09 at 21:33
