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

It would be helpful to show vote counts on the activity > comments page, and also allow sorting by votes.

This would make it easy to see what comments other people thought were valuable or at least amusing.

Heh, you beat me to it. I would also like to be able to sort the comments by the number of up-votes. – Mihai Todor Sep 15 '12 at 16:13
I'd much rather have the ability to search my comments. – animuson Sep 17 '12 at 17:33
@animuson I'd like that too. I still very much want an easy way to find out which of my comments were up-voted. – Mr.Wizard Sep 17 '12 at 18:03

While a nice idea, the purposeful relegating of comments to second-class-citizen status means that extra support for them isn't likely to be forthcoming.

As a consolation prize, this information is available via the Data Explorer, e.g.: Top ranked comments for a particular UserId.

Though the Data Explorer often doesn't have the most timely information.

Thanks, that's what I needed. With this functionality I'm OK if votes are not shown on the activity page. – Mr.Wizard Sep 18 '12 at 19:41
I've given you the bounty for this answer. I'm holding the Accept until my site (Mathematica) is added to Data Explorer, at which time it will become an actual solution. – Mr.Wizard Sep 23 '12 at 0:24
Mathematica.SE has been added to the Data Explorer. Accepted as promised! – Mr.Wizard Nov 19 '12 at 7:30
