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

I have migrated this request from now deleted "New User Profile - LIVE" thread where it received ~25 upvotes.

It would be convenient to have tooltips in the "Summary" section. For example, on the old profile page we could see number of views and answers right near the question. Since this information is not available anymore on the summary tab (you have to open "Questions" tab to see it), mentioned numbers can be shown in the question tooltip instead:

I am all for having more information available, especially in an unobtrusive way like tooltips. Having interesting tidbits of info in tooltips on just about everything is one of my most favorite-est things in the whole wide world. Well, after ponies...and perhaps hand-drawn red circles...this post needs more circles. – cdeszaq Jan 24 '12 at 14:08
@cdeszaq Yep, it looks better now :) – Idolon Jan 24 '12 at 14:50
+1, though I'd prefer the tags of the question included – Tobias Kienzler Jan 29 '12 at 21:55
@TobiasKienzler - I think the view / vote / answer count could be a tooltip on the vote number, and the tags could be a tooltip on the question title. Keeps things a bit cleaner. Good idea though. – cdeszaq Jan 31 '12 at 13:29
