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

How do I view my past comments?

I can easily find answers I;ve given, and comments made on my posts. But often I comment on an answer in a question and then never find the question again. Is this accessible anywhere?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You have the activity tab on your profile.

Unfortunately, that's a limited list.

Other than that, you have to bookmark them yourself, or look them up in the data dump:
This is an example for my userid on SO.

I would give an example with your userid, but as your accounts aren't associated, and "John" isn't particularly a unique name... ;-)

Seems a strange omission to me. I guess I can star the entire question? – Mr. Boy Mar 18 '10 at 10:07
@John: Yes, "starring" is one way of bookmarking a question. – fretje Mar 18 '10 at 10:08

Looks like there is a newer way. Visit the StackExchange Data Explorer and create a query for showing comments from a particular user id (like in @Ether's example).

Here's mine:

-- Show Comments 
-- Show all my comments
SELECT * FROM comments WHERE userid=116891 ORDER BY creationdate DESC​

If you're willing to wait until the next month's data dump, you can see all your comments by querying Joel C's excellent StackQL with a query like:

SELECT * FROM comments WHERE userid=<your userid> ORDER BY creationdate DESC
