Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Can I find out about the average vote count for questions and answers on a particular site?

If so, how?

What about the average vote count for my own questions/answers on a specific site?

You could certainly get that information from the data explorer. Have you tried that? – blahdiblah Feb 27 '13 at 2:40
@blahdiblah Thanks for pointing me to this; I think this does it for questions on TeX.SE; not sure about answers. – Lover of Structure Feb 27 '13 at 3:22
It sounds like you might be looking for the 'Switch sites' feature underneath "Run Query". – blahdiblah Feb 27 '13 at 4:13
Please don't ask multiple questions in single post. – hims056 Feb 27 '13 at 6:05
@hims056 The question title as it stands was/is ambiguous, which wasn't initially obvious to me, but I think it may be better that way. You really think it's better to ask 4 separate questions instead, given that this one has no upvotes as of right now? And given that the answer queries are likely related or derivable from each other? And given that these questions are very much related? And given that the Data Explorer seems to have no way of requesting queries from those familiar with it? – Lover of Structure Feb 27 '13 at 6:07
@blahdiblah Actually, I was looking for an answer for TeX.SE specifically, so I had figured this one out; thanks anyways. // I noticed however that the site's queries are often not well-described. // See also my question edit. – Lover of Structure Feb 27 '13 at 6:08

Here is a query to get you started:

(Hit edit query and then run)



You can modify the filters, for example, to remove closed questions.

To get a particular user's average question score and average answer score for a site, the following query does the job:

You can run these queries on other sites by using the "switch site" function on

Awesome; as for the "my own questions and answers" part, I have tried this: Not sure whether this works. For non-zero answers this seems to work, but for questions I definitely don't get the right results. – Lover of Structure Feb 27 '13 at 18:45
Your query works for me, but only on sites where I have questions and answers. Your link goes to the TEX stackexchange site, and I get blanks for that. – Brian Webster Feb 27 '13 at 18:52
I thought so, but I most likely miscounted earlier. When I tested again just now, with users with a small number of questions/answers including at least one zero-score question/answer, the results were exactly right. – Lover of Structure Feb 27 '13 at 20:02
Huh. If I try it with my own score on this site (the big meta), I get the wrong result for my "my questions and answers" query: Right now I get 6 (for questions) and 0 (for answers), but the question score should be one of {27/6, 27/7, 29/7} (reflecting the progression of recent changes); I tried with my meta user ID, 188174. – Lover of Structure Feb 27 '13 at 20:29
Keep in mind that the data that you are querying against may be old. For example, last I checked, the data snapshot was from 2/03/13 – Brian Webster Feb 28 '13 at 0:19
So the date of the snapshot is given by the last data column in the overview on the big site. Mystery resolved! – Lover of Structure Feb 28 '13 at 0:44
