I am looking for a way to sort the list of my answers on a Stack Exchange site by the size of content (number of words). I am looking to hand pick article length answers that I have written in past.

The only sorting criterion that I can find is based on date of posting, votes and activity.

Is there a way to do so? I am not really interested in the count of words, just the sorted output with lengthiest to shortest answers.

It would also be nice to know if a post contains image(s) and URL(s).


There is no sort option for content length on the website, so we'll have to resort to other methods like the Data Explorer. This query lists your lengthiest answers on Ask Different, including the number of links and images:

SEDE query results

Note that clickable images ([![][1]][1]) will count twice; once for the image and once for the link.

Since SEDE is updated once a week, on Sunday morning, new answers won't appear immediately. Feel free to fork the query to adapt it to your needs. If you want to experiment, do try the awesome tutorial.
