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.

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.)

    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 .

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.

    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. Aug 16 '19 at 13:50

    This may not show the ones that you have unsubscribed from, despite the comment still being there. The "commenter:username" search will work.

Easier and improve from the accepted answer:
is:issue commenter:@me

View all my comments on GitHub Issues

Visit: https://github.com/issues?q=is%3Aissue+commenter%3A%40me+sort%3Aupdated-desc

Explained

  • https://github.com/issues lists all issues on Gitub
  • Filter by is:issue commenter:@me sort:updated-desc
    • commenter:@me dynamically always filters by the logged in user (you could also replace @me with your actual username)
    • sort:updated-desc the default sort is based on Newest which looks at issue creation date. Setting to sort by updated means issues with the most recent posts will appear first (this is what I expected the default to be)

Alternatively, https://github.com/notifications/subscriptions works as a decent proxy, but if you have unsubscribed to an issue it won't show here any more (thanks @guettli for this one).

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
