I was reviewing the star on chat.SE list this morning and I noticed that quite a few of the items on the list were mine. I was curious as to how often people enjoy the things I post there enough to star them, but I can't seem to find statistics about this anywhere. Mana told me that no such feature exists. (the best we could come up with is a list of things I've linked to, with the starred items at the top.)

So here's my request - can I filter/search the chat history for things I've said that other people have starred?

  • Always wanted this myself.

    @GnomeSlice: Presumably you didn't think of that because most of the Stars list is things that you've said taken out of context anyway. Commented Dec 4, 2011 at 14:31

Alright alright alright. It's an ego thing really, but I can't deny to sometimes be curious about that myself :)

The room's "stars" info page now has three subfilters; I've also clarified the wordings. They are "all" (the default), "starred by me", and "posted by me".

    tested at Whiteboard, it's there indeed (http://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/info/21/the-whiteboard?tab=stars&filter=mymessages). +1 for giving my ego a pleasant massage :)
