Rationale: labels are a valuable way to receive and give feedback, so it would be useful to have more labels-related tools.
This topic deals with labels received by an ordinary user or given by an ordinary user from that user's point of view (as opposed to non-logged-in lurkers, other ordinary users, and users with elevated privileges).
While labels presently only apply to comments, these suggestions would apply to topic labels when they are implemented, and to other labellable content types should any appear.
The “Gilded” page—Issue 423
Suggestion 1. Users can filter their user pages for content labelled
Unlike all other suggestions, this also applies to users viewing other users' pages, and possibly even to lurkers viewing user pages.
I also suggest that users have an option to automatically expand the
Exemplary messages when they see their own
Other labels given TO the user
The common point is that it would help if users observe the feedback given to them by others via labels. In addition, this would prevent label misuse and abuse.

Suggestion 2a. If comment vote counts remain generally hidden, users should still be able to see the vote counts for their own comments.
Suggestion 3. Users can filter their user pages for content labelled
Malice (but, of course, they should not be able to see
Suggestion 4. Users can filter their user pages for content with any label (maybe with further options like All labels vs “Non-major” ones).
Edit: Suggestions 2, 3, and 4 might go with time lags. Namely, labels given to own content are only visible for content older than X minutes (X can be even 1440 or more) and to users with accounts older than Y days.
Labels given BY the user
Suggestion 5. Users have an option to automatically expand the label pane for the content they have already labelled.
Suggestion 6. Users can easily overview the content they labelled
Exemplary. (This is basically the “Gilded” page in the other direction.) In addition, users can see the messages they provided when giving
Suggestion 7. Users can easily overview the content they labelled
Malice. In addition, users can see the messages they provided when giving
P.S. These suggestions deal with the current labels, but they can be extended to future labels, e.g., group-specific ones.
