When i heard about the timeline page which is rather unknown (well, there is no link to it) i thought it would be fun to write a script which gets all the votes from there and mimics the view vote counts priviledge.
Yesterday i got around to doing this and it works really well (until the year 10000 at least). Now i've got two questions:
- What is the database load associated with accessing the timeline? (As i read that one of the reasons for this to be a priviledge is that the necessessary queries are time-consuming)
- Am i right in assuming that i should not post my script on StackApps?
Edit: As of now the script can be found here...
