I recently hit 1k rep on SO, and so gained the privilege of splitting the total score on a post, into its respective upvotes and downvotes.

Is there a way to get a question's score permanently displayed in this way? I seem to remember there was a user-script? I can't seem to find it now.

The system limits you to one query per second. So even if you had the script, there'd be significant lag before all the scores are expanded on a question with multiple answers. – Mysticial Mar 3 '13 at 4:03
@Mysticial Just for the question would be nice though... Nice going with the Pi thing btw ;) – Danny Beckett Mar 3 '13 at 4:03
I don't recall a UserScript for permanent display, only the one that just steals the information from the timeline of the post so users without the privilege can see them too. – animuson Mar 3 '13 at 4:10
@animuson That's the user-script I was referring to. It never worked for me at the time, I was hoping to try it again now that I have the priv... but I guess from your explanation of how it worked, it still won't work. – Danny Beckett Mar 3 '13 at 4:11
@animuson Please see the new answer. – Danny Beckett Mar 19 '13 at 2:22

The reason that this requires 1k rep in the first place is that it is more expensive to get individual vote counts than it is to get the total +/- votes.

This would ruin the point of the privelege.

Why is it a privilege to view vote counts?
