It would be helpful to show vote counts on the activity > comments page, and also allow sorting by votes.

This would make it easy to see what comments other people thought were valuable or at least amusing.

  • Heh, you beat me to it. I would also like to be able to sort the comments by the number of up-votes. – Mihai Todor Sep 15 '12 at 16:13

    I'd much rather have the ability to search my comments. – animuson Sep 17 '12 at 17:33
  • @animuson I'd like that too. I still very much want an easy way to find out which of my comments were up-voted. – Mr.Wizard Sep 17 '12 at 18:03

While a nice idea, the purposeful relegating of comments to second-class-citizen status means that extra support for them isn't likely to be forthcoming.

As a consolation prize, this information is available via the Data Explorer, e.g.: Top ranked comments for a particular UserId.

Though the Data Explorer often doesn't have the most timely information.

  • Thanks, that's what I needed. With this functionality I'm OK if votes are not shown on the activity page. – Mr.Wizard Sep 18 '12 at 19:41
  • I've given you the bounty for this answer. I'm holding the Accept until my site (Mathematica) is added to Data Explorer, at which time it will become an actual solution. – Mr.Wizard Sep 23 '12 at 0:24
  • Mathematica.SE has been added to the Data Explorer. Accepted as promised! – Mr.Wizard Nov 19 '12 at 7:30
