How might I review all staff posts and comments published since late September?

If that's not possible, then how about just the posts?

It's hard enough already to generate a list of staff members, but I guess you could use the API to get a list of recent posts and recent comments (those calls support pagination). For each new 100 user IDs you encounter, request the complete user record. Those contain an is_employee field, indicating whether a user is a staff member or not. This might be doable before running out of your daily API quota (10000 if you have a registered Stack App).

It's not possible to make a SEDE query for this, since whether a user is an employee or not isn't stored there. But, if you have a list of user IDs, it's doable.

Here is a list of posts since September 28th:

  • Thank you. Can you think of a way to write a feature request? If I'm interested in viewing your posts, I can click on your username, click on "Activity," and then choose "All." The most recent items will show up first. But for staff, we're talking about multiple users. Would a collection of links to each staff post and comment have to be made manually? Dec 19, 2019 at 15:18

    Stack Exchange is about the content, not the users. That's probably why it isn't possible. Sure, here on Meta.SE staff posts carry more weight, but searching for staff posts isn't a frequently occurring use case, I guess.
