I know I have seen a link recently to a query to get number of up-voted comments. Can someone post it?

I have seen many questions asking this same questions, but the answers are broken, because they all point to http://statoverflow.com/, and I can not even access that site. Anyone know why? For example this:
Is there a way to know when one of my comments gets "upvoted"?

The data dumps are featured on http://data.stackexchange.com now. I think that was site you have there is its former home.

There's this query which will show you how many comments over a score of 5 you have (and thus count towards the Pundit badge.

Here's one from the legendary Waffles which will give you the distribution of all of the comments.

There are a few others that are variants on these two, just search in the box.

You can get this live out of our API, with the query:


For your Stack Overflow count, at time of writing that returns

  "total": 96,
  "page": 1,
  "pagesize": 0,
  "comments": []

So, you have 96 upvoted comments

When I try it this way, it seems to only go so far back. Is there another setting? I guess I'll have to use the API and SEDE and meet in the middle! :) – jonsca Jul 14 '11 at 15:15
@jonsca - set fromdate and todate (unix epoch format) to constrain by time. By default it doesn't filter at all, but we do exclude deleted comments and comments on deleted posts. – Kevin Montrose Jul 14 '11 at 15:39
One of my good comments was just deleted, that was it. Thanks! – jonsca Jul 14 '11 at 15:59
