Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Steps to reproduce behaviour:

  1. Click a post's score to display the up and down votes.
  2. Vote either up or down on that post.

Expected result:

The updated up/down votes (with my vote counted) is displayed.

Actual result:

Only the post score (with my vote counted) is displayed.

Is this by design, or something that could be requested?

up vote 2 down vote accepted

I think this is by-design. There's nothing restricting you from clicking post's score again, but I think that when you click upvote or downvote, you already know number of upvotes and/or downvotes.

True, the fact that the up/down disappears isn't like i'm loosing info (as you say, i've just seen the votes!), but it looks a little odd having it change back from a UI point of view (IMO). – George Duckett Aug 23 '11 at 15:25
@GeorgeDuckett: On that logic i would say it is also odd that you cannot switch back by clicking it again. – H.B. Aug 23 '11 at 15:33
@H.B.: Agreed.. Ideally i'd like voting to preserve whether up/down or just score is shown, as well as clicking on the up/down votes making it revert back to store (as i understand your comment above). – George Duckett Aug 23 '11 at 15:37

I would say it's by design, as that is the only way to make the count of the up-votes and down-votes disappear, without to refresh the full page.
