What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I suggested this on UserVoice, but with the discontinuation of that site wanted to move the suggestion and discussion here.

A list of all comments on the User Tab would be useful. Recent comments are available from the recent tab but I'd like to have access to all comments. I would envision something very close to the list of Answers already present on the profile page.

I'd like to see this added as well... I didn't have enough points to upvote you, but you've got my support! –  Mottie Nov 15 '09 at 16:12

This is now possible.

From the user profile click Activity, then filter by Comments.

While we wait for this feature to be added, you can search for your comments in the data dump.

I'd like to see that too. Comments are becoming almost as important as the answers themselves.

On meta maybe...but comments aren't as important on other sites. –  jjnguy Aug 20 '09 at 15:54

@jjnguy: Not as important, true, but I find it very handy to have my comment watcher tell me when there's been activity on a thread where I was active. The discussions around questions and answers on SO are often very valuable---usually not in a conversational kind of way like on meta, but often from a technical perspective. –  balpha Aug 20 '09 at 15:58
    
I see your point. It just seems to happen much less often on other sites. –  jjnguy Aug 20 '09 at 16:00

I find them pretty useful on Stack Overflow. They often add a little something to an answer that the OP forgot, or offer a alternative insight (but without needing to be a separate answer). –  DisgruntledGoat Aug 23 '09 at 0:41

Comment tracking would be great! A lot of comments assist the answer and it would be great to go back and review responses to your comments easily rather than trying to remember, "Damn! What was that question I was just commenting on a couple hrs ago?" –  staticx Dec 2 '09 at 0:53

I'd like to see that, and also to be able to see and sort by date and votes.
