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

Here's a crop of a screen shot from the question list on the Meta Stack Overflow front page:

Look at that middle item. How can a question with 44 kviews have only one vote?!

Oh, wait. That's 1 kvotes. (I missed the "k".)

Can we make that stand out a bit more? The kviews seem to stand out a bit; why can't the kvotes? Bold? Red? A flashing border? Anything?

We could make them stand out by putting the k with the number, like we do with rep, but limiting the text to fit in the space:






and then take the 'k' off of the kvotes or kviews text.

Indeed, and in response to the sure to come "you lose precision that way because the k takes up a character"; if it was 10k rather than 10.1k would that really make a difference – Richard Tingle Jan 6 '14 at 14:36
It looks like this is what has been done. – Al E. Jun 3 '15 at 23:47
@AlE., nice to see things done, and it only took 17 months. – Lance Roberts Jun 3 '15 at 23:53
Well, not quite that long. It looks like it was addressed in the previous design refresh. – Al E. Jun 4 '15 at 0:53
Here's the answer about the fix: – Lance Roberts Jun 4 '15 at 21:19

Questions will really rarely hit the kvotes but I agree that they are barely noticeable as they are right now.

I think kviews should get the same treatment too since there are always more views than votes.

There's well over 50 such questions on Stack Overflow and at least two here. It's that rarity that calls for different treatment. – Al E. Jan 3 '14 at 13:59
@AI It does, And I agree. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jan 3 '14 at 14:02
Agree that views would benefit from the same change – OGHaza Jan 3 '14 at 15:38
