If you go to your friend's profile page, at the bottom you'll see a link to their "user feed". This will give you an RSS feed of your friend's activity.

Due to query constraints and ease of localization, I opted to use your initial suggestion: This will be in the next build, going out now.

Go to your profile -> click on votes tab -> click on upvotes (assuming you upvoted that answer) Here you will get the list of posts you have upvoted.

It's possible some of the terms got mixed up (SO vs. the SE Network?), but Joel's intended point is correct: In September, there were 32,025 generous users who posted five times or more on the Stack Exchange network (including, SO, SF, etc.) In September, English Wikipedia* had 29,434 five-time editors. These numbers bounce around some, but that month isn'...

As of today: Yes, at long last there is some indication in these lists when the most current activity is not from the current year. We should've probably done this long ago - goodness knows how often this has tripped me up when viewing folks' profiles - but Alex came back after you posted this, so we had to wait for him to take another break in order to ...

I have a slightly better idea. Rather than modifying the system to include some sort of useless text there that doesn't really identify anything, we should simply have the Community user automatically delete orphaned wikis. This would fall in line with consistency for deleted questions and answers. Activity on deleted posts doesn't show up in that list at ...

Currently no, there is no way to hide any of that information we have no plans on introducing any. Could you elaborate on what kind of problems you're running into? Depending on your concerns, you could use a second account or browse the site anonymously without logging in. You also don't have to use your real name on your account. Many people use ...

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="/...

This would be a really useful feature - save a bit of time in following up on comments. I don't think it would actually be that hard to implement, as everybody already says, the data is already saved and freely available. That said, here's a userscript to show the number of comment upvotes. It adds a button next to each comment listing to show the score ...

Moderators don't have the ability to do that. Some of the staff do, but the only way they would do that is if they make you a moderator on a site - which won't happen if you don't have any site experience. So, in effect, no. There's no way to get past the reputation requirements other than getting to 200 reputation on one site. I think it's important to ...

Aaand... it is back where it belongs: Activity tab > All actions > Comments. Will be out in all network sites in a couple of minutes. Sorry about that!

It's fixed and will be out in the next deploy.

Here's how to get a list of answers as URLs: Go to stackoverflow.com/reputation Ctrl+A (select all) Ctrl+C (copy) Fire up Notepad++ (or your favourite Linux alternative) Ctrl+V (paste) Ctrl+H (find & replace) Search Mode: Regular expression Find: ^(?!.*\(-1\)$).*$\r\n Replace: <blank> Find: ^ *\d+ +(\d+).*$ Replace: https://stackoverflow.com/a/$...

I just saw another case of this. A controversial nomination attracted a lot of comments; some were very rude and were deleted, and then the nomination was withdrawn. The comments that were actually deleted are, as we would expect, gone from user profiles, but the comments that remained at the time of the withdrawal are still there in the profiles even ...

Yep, Meta.SE, Workplace.SE, and Money.SE were incorrectly filtered from that list because of a data inconsistency. Fixed now.

If the status of this changed today then it'll be a discrepancy between the script that actually awards the badge - which usually run over UTC night and the code that updates your profile in, more or less, real time. If you still don't have the badge tomorrow then raise an issue.

A first approximation on Stack Overflow finds 14594 distinct users having over five questions and answers in the last 30 days with non-negative score, not closed and not deleted. So it would seem that Stack Overflow is still quite far from Wikipedia, or even just the English Wikipedia, as far as this simplistic metric goes.

Yes, there is in fact a way to get privileges without earning the required amount of reputation. You have to be a moderator. To have that access on all sites would require being an employee of SE (some of whom are given moderator privileges on all sites, if their role requires such access). Whether that's more or less work than earning 200 reputation on ...

As you noticed, the whole activity tab disappeared, not just comments. At least I know the reason why it did happen. This request was just implemented. Before your old profile located at /users/{id}/name?tt=activity and your new one located at /users/{id}/name?tt=profile. Your activity tab located at /users/{id}/name?tt=activity&tab=activity and (for ...

This answer was deleted along with the question “How to Add Text in a PNG File with HTML”: When an image is saved, it uses algorithms to tell where the pixels should be. (try editing a .png in notepad, you'll see what i mean) You cannot do this with HTML. HTML is a markup language. All it knows how to do is display. The only ways i can think of ...

As I understood Mr. Cartaino's answer, this suggestion was declined, because misusing the "minor edit" function could make easier to make destructive or invalid changes below the radar. This is right, but the Wikipedia has a solution for this, and a similar solution is what I suggest: On the list of the recently changed questions, a "without minor changes" ...

So, the bit that makes this weird is that withdrawn nominations aren't deleted. You can easily observe this by visiting the nominee's profile - not just the comments they left on their withdrawn nomination, but the nomination itself will be clearly visible in their activity list, with the oh-so-descriptive "wiki" indicator next to it. There is a way to ...

We used to just look at the actual revision and the original comment that was left with it rather than checking for any subsequent changes to it. I pushed a fix that accounts for the summary edits, and it will go live in the next build (rev 2016.8.24.4918 on MSE/MSO, rev 2016.8.24.3922 elsewhere).

Add the question to favourites. There's no mechanism for favoriting answers but close enough.

A notification when your post -- either question or answer -- has been migrated would be very helpful. (I think askers get a notification, but I'm not certain.) Most of the time, from what I've seen, content that was written for one site needs some adjustment when migrated to another -- the sites' baseline assumptions are different, rules about questions ...

Apologies if this has already been mentioned (there are several more-or-less similar proposals, with multiple comments and answers each, but I have not found the same combination). How about the following? An editor can click a different (adjacent) button to save as a minor edit. (Single click, not a check box plus click to save.) Such a minor edit would ...

You obviously can't, regardless of this profile being yours or someone else's ;) This happens because the sum of recent rep is zero - in this case looks like recent rep for that question is calculated of 2 upvotes and 5 downvotes. And this rep isn't necessary summed for only today - hence the confusion.

One major component of the review activity tab on your profile that you must understand is that deleted posts are never shown there. No matter what queue the review happened in, if the parent post ends up being deleted, the review task will also disappear from your list shortly after. In that sense, you should not consider the number of reviews in that tab ...

Because it would be too dynamic to be useful. At any given time a huge number of comments are being made in comparison to posts or edits. The relative usefulness of these is vastly lower and usually does not warrant new eyeballs on an issue.
