SE is already very good in keeping each individual user's record on their questions raised and their answers posted. I am wondering is it also possible to keep track of their comments made too? Then it would be easier for one to review them at a click of a button (or a link).

Under your profile, there is a tab called "activity." Under this you will find several filters. One of them is "comments."

  • $\begingroup$ However only recent comments can be seen. What about older comments? A comment may be as useful as answer. $\endgroup$ – user10676 Dec 20 '13 at 10:39

    $\begingroup$ @user10676 What do you mean by recent? As far as I can tell, it has all activity there. $\endgroup$ – Tobias Kildetoft Dec 20 '13 at 11:55

    $\begingroup$ Indeed, all 3,204 of my comments since my very first one on MSE seem to be there ... all 161 pages of them. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Dec 20 '13 at 13:47
  • $\begingroup$ Great. The "activity" has what I wanted. $\endgroup$ – Mick Dec 21 '13 at 4:46

If browsing through the comments list in your profile takes too long, you can search them through Data Explorer:

and my favorite

E.g., suppose you request clarification of a question, the OP eventually edits the post but does not @-mention you in a comment. The query finds all such instances. Same for typos you point out: once they are corrected, the comment can be removed. Also, downvotes.

  • $\begingroup$ The search program is powerful. If I may, I would like to suggest an enhancement (= provide options or an example for the field 'pattern'). It is difficult for a newbie like me to guess what should be filled. $\endgroup$ – Mick Dec 21 '13 at 4:53
  • $\begingroup$ This isn't an answer to the original question, but Data Explorer also has list a user's positive score comments, sorted by score If you want the zero score comments too, it wouldn't be hard to change the code. $\endgroup$ – Mark S. Dec 31 '13 at 15:54
