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

Yesterday I upvoted a comment that had interesting links. I didn't do any other activity in that question apart from giving my upvote to that comment because it had some links I wanted to check later.

Now a day has passed and I want to view that comment to bookmark those links, but I can't see any way on Stack Overflow to see comments that I've upvoted. Can I see these votes? If not, why is this feature missing?

Comment is 2nd class citizen - so it's normal that one or two things about it is missing... – nhahtdh Sep 23 '12 at 6:17

Comments, as has been said in the past, are second class citizens. They are ephemeral, which means that when they cease to serve their purpose they get deleted.

This makes it quite useless for a feature to exist for browsing the ones you upvoted: they might not be there anymore. While you can see the votes you casted on posts (questions and answers), which could be deleted or not but they are originally meant to stay. You can find them like this:

  1. Click on your username above (i.e. go to your profile);
  2. Choose the tab "votes";
  3. Here they are, divided by category.

I'm giving you upvote for caring to answer, thanks. So summarizing the answers, "Can I see these votes? -> No" , "why is this feature missing? -> By design". – Nelson Sep 23 '12 at 18:48
@Nelson Yes. Simply because part or all of them might be deleted so the "summary" of that would be incomplete. – Alenanno Sep 23 '12 at 20:40
