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

It appears that now upvotes on CW posts appear on the reputation tab of the profile page:

It would be nice to have some sort of indicator that these are upvotes on CW posts - when I first saw them I didn't understand why I have upvotes with no reputation attached, first thing in the day...

Some sort of indicator would make these more visible.

I agree. Perhaps something like this?

mock-up of wiki upvote - 1

(Note, it would have the standard red if it is a downvote)

Or this?

mock-up of wiki upvote - 2

(Again, with the standard red if it is a downvote)

Personally, I'm partial to the first (since we're used to lower-case lettering for indicators such as this, but I can go either way.

The point is, that empty space can be used for something to make the experience better for those lines.

Visually, I like either one. Clear and to the point. I favour CW as it is a common acronym in the network and the wiki notation by itself may be more confusing. – Oded Apr 14 '12 at 17:35
And maybe also something similar when the reputation cap has been reached? That's a bit difficult if one gets partial rep (like 4 points out of 10) for some upvote. – Arjan Apr 14 '12 at 18:02
Disagree with Oded. Not only are the lower-case letters of wiki much more aesthetically pleasing, but I don't think most people know what the CW acronym means. Heck, I'd have to spend a while scratching my head if I saw that. Everyone knows what a wiki is. CW looks like something else. – Cody Gray Apr 15 '12 at 9:54
