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

I'm aware I can view all of my downvotes by going here:

But there are reams of downvotes matched.

I also tried looking at the advanced search operators, but there's nothing useful there.

How can I view only the answers I've downvoted?

You can find them through your /reputation page, but that's hardly handy. – Mat May 4 '13 at 12:55
@Mat Nice, I hadn't thought of using that! Have a look at my answer... – Danny Beckett May 4 '13 at 14:05
Maybe a feature request. Similar to hasaccepted in the search results. It could be medownvote: answer – Cody Guldner May 22 '13 at 1:21

Quick & dirty option: navigate to your /reputation, open your browser's dev tools (F12 in Chrome), and dump this to the JavaScript console:

var pre = document.getElementsByTagName('pre')[0];
var links = '<h1>Answers I\'ve downvoted:</h1>';
var re = /^ \d +(\d+) +\(-1/gm;
var ma;
while (ma = re.exec(pre.innerHTML)) {
  links += '<a href="/a/'+ma[1]+'">'+ma[1]+'</a><br>';
document.body.innerHTML = links;

Dirty maybe, but quick, and in-browser too. Nice. – AndrewC May 4 '13 at 14:57

Here's how to get a list of answers as URLs:

  1. Go to
  2. Ctrl+A (select all)
  3. Ctrl+C (copy)
  4. Fire up Notepad++ (or your favourite Linux alternative)
  5. Ctrl+V (paste)
  6. Ctrl+H (find & replace)
  7. Search Mode: Regular expression

Find: ^(?!.*\(-1\)$).*$\r\n

Replace: <blank>

Find: ^ *\d+ +(\d+).*$


Leaves something like:

You can drop the www. part, it's not necessary. Saves a few bytes :) – Mat May 4 '13 at 14:07
Yeah, like SE is worried about a few bytes... – American Luke May 22 '13 at 2:09
