On the activity tab of a user you can see user feed. This feed seems to include also comments - however, those links are in a strange format. I can just say that when I try them, they do not link to comments.

I will use my own feed as an example.

For example, I can see there the following two links to comments:

    <entry>
        <id>https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/271267/a-guide-to-moderating-chat/271268?cid=1055531#271268</id>
        <title type="text">Comment by Martin on A guide to moderating chat</title>
...
        <link rel="alternate" href="https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/271267/a-guide-to-moderating-chat/271268#271268" />
...
    </entry>
    <entry>
        <id>https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/117569/how-can-i-bookmark-a-chat/117571?cid=1055001#117571</id>
...
        <link rel="alternate" href="https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/117569/how-can-i-bookmark-a-chat/117571#117571" />
...
    </entry>

However, when I try the links given there, they do not actually lead to a comment, as you can check for yourself.

The links from the first entry are: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/271267/a-guide-to-moderating-chat/271268?cid=1055531#271268 A guide to moderating chat and https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/271267/a-guide-to-moderating-chat/271268#271268 A guide to moderating chat It is probably supposed to be link to this comment.

The links from the second entry are: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/117569/how-can-i-bookmark-a-chat/117571?cid=1055001#117571 How can I bookmark a chat? and https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/117569/how-can-i-bookmark-a-chat/117571#117571 How can I bookmark a chat? It is probably supposed to be link to this comment

In both cases the number shown as cid=Id (such as 117571?cid=1055001#117571) seems to be the id of a comment. However, in the URL that actually link to a comment this number appears in a different format in the URL (117571#comment1055001_117571).


I have also tried to post a feed into a chatroom - also there it seems to pick posts rather than comments.

I will mention also the fact that the tooltip shown when hovering over the "user feed" link says: "feed of the 30 latest questions, answers, and comments from this users". This suggests that the intention was to include comments.
