My profile page used to have a votes tab that showed me what my latest X votes were. It is not there anymore. What happened to it? Why was it removed? I looked everywhere but couldn't find anyone talking about it. I use this often to go back to downvotes and see if they've been edited to fix a problem so I can then remove my downvote.

Edit: I made this a feature request to bring this functionality back.

    I know it was there yesterday, is missing for me currently. Aug 15, 2009 at 1:12
  • I also want to view all the posts that I voted up and voted down before as I want to keep track all the good posts for my future reference.

    A weak workaround for answers that you cast down votes on is to skim through your profile's reputation tab looking for -1s.

Votes Tab is Back from vacation.

It took a long term vacation so it could come back, bigger, stronger and betterer.

We brought it back in a format very similar to the activity stream, clearly you can only see your votes. You can see deletions/undeletions/closures and reopens as well as up/down votes.

One slight open question is how to add a filter that allows you to see stuff that you downvoted in the past and now is no longer vote locked. For the time being you can trawl through your downvoted list.

And it is now full fledged. We can see different vote casts.

  3. Delete Votes
  4. Undelete Votes
  5. Closure Votes
  6. Reopen Votes

I wanted to follow up on a question I downvoted and now I can't find it anymore... I used this tab to this end.

Please bring it back


I'll miss this tab... I use it quite a bit when investigating unusual voting patterns.

But I'd agree that it probably isn't very useful to your standard user.

    Are there any plans to bring this back? If not, may I ask why? Oct 1, 2011 at 6:21
  • @Chris it was removed over two years ago, before I worked for SE. I wasn't involved in the discussion re changing it, but ultimately I think I was wrong - for my purposes the existing UI worked fine. Is there something you need? Oct 1, 2011 at 21:42

It appears to be completely removed - visiting my votes URL directly doesn't work either. However, it doesn't make much sense as to why, unless this is related to this "bug" (which I couldn't verify) and has been taken temporarily offline until a hole is patched.
