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

Currently, the tooltip for split vote totals shows something akin to +1 up / -1 down.

The double-negative here is bugging me (and the double-positive too, actually). I feel it should say either 1 up / 1 down or +1 / -1.

Good point, +1 up – George Duckett Dec 6 '11 at 16:54
It gets ugly if there are no downvotes. +1 / 0 == +Inf? – Mat Dec 6 '11 at 17:21
This really bugs me also. I like your suggestions, and if either are zero then just ignore completely (e.g. 7 up). – Sir Crispalot Mar 21 '12 at 22:28

I don't know what you are looking at.

It looks like you want it to already for me:

It's in the tooltip. – George Duckett Dec 6 '11 at 16:55
I'm looking at the tooltip that appears on rollover. – Toomai Dec 6 '11 at 16:56
