Right now, the
Votes is only available if the vote is a favorite. It would be nice if users logged in could have
UserId for all types of votes that they themselves cast, so queries for closeness to the Sportsmanship badge, for example, could be implemented.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
If I'm not horribly mistaken, SEDE's data source is the publicly available data dump, where votes are anonymized. Obviously that can't change for the data dump, so the only way for such a feature to get implemented would be for SEDE to have a different data source. I think we can safely assume that SEDE will never be tied to live data, so a different data source would mean yet another data dump the team would have to maintain.
Too much trouble just to check your badge progress, don't you think?
