I'm aware I can view all of my downvotes by going here:

But there are reams of downvotes matched.

I also tried looking at the advanced search operators, but there's nothing useful there.

How can I view only the answers I've downvoted?

    You can find them through your /reputation page, but that's hardly handy. – Mat May 4 '13 at 12:55
  • @Mat Nice, I hadn't thought of using that! Have a look at my answer... – Danny Beckett May 4 '13 at 14:05

    Maybe a feature request. Similar to hasaccepted in the search results. It could be medownvote: answer – Cody Guldner May 22 '13 at 1:21

Quick & dirty option: navigate to your /reputation, open your browser's dev tools (F12 in Chrome), and dump this to the JavaScript console:

var pre = document.getElementsByTagName('pre')[0];
var links = '<h1>Answers I\'ve downvoted:</h1>';
var re = /^ \d +(\d+) +\(-1/gm;
var ma;
while (ma = re.exec(pre.innerHTML)) {
  links += '<a href="/a/'+ma[1]+'">'+ma[1]+'</a><br>';
document.body.innerHTML = links;

    Dirty maybe, but quick, and in-browser too. Nice. – AndrewC May 4 '13 at 14:57

Here's how to get a list of answers as URLs:

  1. Go to stackoverflow.com/reputation
  2. Ctrl+A (select all)
  3. Ctrl+C (copy)
  4. Fire up Notepad++ (or your favourite Linux alternative)
  5. Ctrl+V (paste)
  6. Ctrl+H (find & replace)
  7. Search Mode: Regular expression

Find: ^(?!.*\(-1\)$).*$\r\n

Replace: <blank>

Find: ^ *\d+ +(\d+).*$

Replace: https://stackoverflow.com/a/$1/

Leaves something like:

    You can drop the www. part, it's not necessary. Saves a few bytes :) – Mat May 4 '13 at 14:07

    Yeah, like SE is worried about a few bytes... – American Luke May 22 '13 at 2:09
