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

I don't understand here Database schema documentation for the public data dump and SEDE the meaning of comments.score. Because I don't see any comment that has a score. So this means it is trivial field?

Look on the left of this comment. It's the number of upvotes and it's called score. For comments without upvotes, it's score is 0 and is not displayed. – Portal Apr 10 '14 at 2:09

@AndrewT. Actually it's NULL until it gets incremented for the first time. ;) – animuson Apr 10 '14 at 2:12
    
@animuson And it's not null anymore even though I un-upvoted it. :P – hichris123 Apr 10 '14 at 2:13
    
How to upvote the comment? – Gerel tumen Apr 10 '14 at 2:13
    
On the left, on rollover, you have a top arrow (click to upvote) and a flag (to flag this comment as spam, offensive or unconstructive). – Fllo Apr 10 '14 at 2:16
    
@Fllo: where's the spam option? – Qantas 94 Heavy Apr 10 '14 at 2:24
    
@Filo Invisible to low-reps. – bjb568 Apr 10 '14 at 2:26
    
@Qantas94Heavy the little flag below the arrow display a popup with options (as rude or offensive,not constructive,obsolete,too chatty and other). I think you can add a comment to say you find that as a "spam". – Fllo Apr 10 '14 at 2:31
    
@Fllo: I know there's a popup, just wondered what you meant by the "spam" option. :) – Qantas 94 Heavy Apr 10 '14 at 2:34
    
@Qantas94Heavy Oh sorry (I meant a comment actually) :) - however, it's not from me, the title of the flag on rollover it's "flag this comment as unconstructive, offensive, or spam" – Fllo Apr 10 '14 at 2:40

You can't upvote a comment because you can't upvote anything yet. Earn 15 reputation somewhere, look for a comment and have fun! – Braiam Apr 10 '14 at 3:35
    
@Qantas It's the same for every site. meta.stackoverflow.com/help/privileges – bjb568 Apr 10 '14 at 4:36
    
@bjb568: I thought it was when you were able to comment, my bad. – Qantas 94 Heavy Apr 10 '14 at 4:38

It is the number of upvotes (if any) that the comment got. Most comments don't get any, so you'd see nothing in that field for them.
