Where can I see all the comments I wrote on issues on the GitHub website?

https://github.com/issues only list the issues I have opened, and not the issues I have commented on.

  • Does anyone actually see a link that brings you to /notifications in the UI? ``` ➜ ~ curl github.com | grep notifications ➜ ~ curl github.com/username | grep notifications <p>Hide content and notifications from this user.</p> ``` – BradGreens Oct 12 '19 at 18:47
  • @BradGreens The bell icon in the top right corner, it seems to be missing an alt tag. More interesting question in this context is if there is a link that brings you to notification/subscriptions, I couldn't find one. – dreua May 23 at 20:55

You can view issues you've commented on by using the following search string in your Issues page search box:

is:issue commenter:username

(Replace username with your GitHub username.)

This will show all issues that you've commented on. To show only open issues, add the is:open qualifier.

    Using is:issue commenter:username should show all issues you've commented on, whether you created the issue or not. (Just tested it successfully.) – freginold Mar 1 '18 at 14:36

    Oh, I found the problem. I hope the default order is showed by comment time desc order, but Newest only show order by issue create time desc. The most approximated option is Recently updated , though not exactly what I want . – Mithril Mar 2 '18 at 2:00

    Searching in a repo for is:issue commenter:@me works for me. – Ryan Feb 11 at 17:41

You can view all the issues on Github you have commented on by going to https://github.com/notifications/subscriptions and selecting Reason as Comment.

This will show all the issues that you've commented on.

You can also filter the issues by selecting other reason such as Assign, Author, Manual, Mention, etc. but you can select only one reason at a time. Also, you can filter the issues by repository by selecting the concerned repository from dropdown after clicking Repository

    And the UI link to that page is the little bell icon at the top-right. – Wadih M. Jun 13 '19 at 22:41
  • This seems...false. For instance, this comment I made in mid-August is NOT showing up at /notifications/subscriptions?reason=comment; the most recent entry listed there is from July. – JamesTheAwesomeDude Aug 16 '19 at 13:50
  • @JamesTheAwesomeDude Are you sure that the comment is not showing up? – Rounak Aug 17 '19 at 16:30

    This may not show the ones that you have unsubscribed from, despite the comment still being there. The "commenter:username" search will work. – Mizstik Aug 24 '19 at 10:46

    Thanks. For me, this provides a lot more hits than in the accepted answer. – Laurie Stearn Jan 26 at 11:37

If you want to search for multiple users in a single search, use it like in the global search bar without the OR logical conjugation:

commenter:FantomX1 commenter:FantomX1-github

since the similar google way approach with 'OR' would not work

commenter:FantomX1 OR commenter:FantomX1-github
