Everyone can see how many favorites a particular question has. And everyone can go to a specific user's profile to see what questions he or she favorited. But I see no way to find out who favorited any specific question - my own questions in particular are the ones that pique my curiosity. (An interest in seeing like-minded people and all that jazz.) Unless there's an angle I'm not trying, googling turns up zilch. Is there a built-in feature to find favoriters, and if not, is the absence of such deliberate (why)?

    $\begingroup$ You may want to try using this query on data.SE. Your user id is 11763. Bear in mind however that the databases there are only updated once or twice a month. $\endgroup$ – t.b. Aug 7 '11 at 8:50
  • $\begingroup$ @Theo: The SQL dumps are bimonthly, but not the kind that happens twice a month, rather they happen once every two months. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Aug 7 '11 at 9:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Asaf: Thanks. I didn't bother to check (I would have understood bimonthly). My point was rather that the databases are somewhat out-of-date most of the time... $\endgroup$ – t.b. Aug 7 '11 at 9:38

    $\begingroup$ @Theo: Quite understood. I was specific since bimonthly is an ambiguous term. I also understood that point you tried making about data.SE being almost always out-of-date, and was just trying to support it by strengthening your case. :-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Aug 7 '11 at 9:41

    $\begingroup$ @Asaf: Ah, I wasn't aware of that ambiguity. I might have used biweekly for twice a month, but now I find out that it is suffering from the same ambiguity. As Obélix would put it: Ils sont fous, ces anglophones! .@anon: sorry about the off-topic pings. $\endgroup$ – t.b. Aug 7 '11 at 9:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Theo: Not a problem. Thanks for the answer. $\endgroup$ – anon Aug 7 '11 at 17:48

As pointed out in the comments, this query will tell you want to know, but the data is typically a month or two behind.

There is no way to retrieve the same information on the site itself and that's currently by design.
