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

This question already has an answer here:

We already know that you can see how many upvotes/downvotes are casted to a question/answer by clicking on the the number of votes (if you are privileged to do so).

It would be even better if another click would hide upvotes/downvotes count and show the ordinary sum number.

It's obviously trivial, but would be more comfortable.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I highly doubt this'll get implemented, as you can simply refresh the page to hide it. But sure, I agree. It'd be more comfortable. =) – J. Steen Mar 8 '13 at 9:45
For those with OCD or like their page to be neat and tidy, this could save lives. – Prof Pickle Mar 8 '13 at 10:34

That would be nice, but here are some workarounds:

  • Refreshing will reset the effect.
  • Voting (either up or down, even if you've voted before and your vote is locked) will reset the effect for that post.

I doubt this to be high on the list of feature implementations, but you never know.
