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

I've only just noticed that you can click on the aggregate vote count on a question or answer in Meta, and see the split of upvotes and downvotes.

As far as I can tell, this isn't live on Stack Overflow yet... when did it come to Meta? Have I been asleep for weeks?

Any news on when it'll come to the other sites?

How did you even notice that? If it weren't for this question, I doubt I would have seen it. – alex Nov 30 '09 at 22:45
@alex - The cursor now changes to a hand when hovering over the vote total, so I'm guessing that's how Jon noticed. – ChrisF Nov 30 '09 at 23:02
@alex: Jon has a daily ritual of going over each pixel on SO/Meta. :) – cletus Nov 30 '09 at 23:43
@cletus: If that were the case, I'd have seen Jeff's update ;) – Jon Skeet Dec 1 '09 at 0:36

It happened earlier today on Meta. It should show up later today on the other sites.

Thanks - hopefully this question will get it a bit more coverage :) – Jon Skeet Nov 30 '09 at 22:19
Yeah, it's easy to miss. – gnostradamus Nov 30 '09 at 22:19
Beat by seconds. Amazing how fast you can get an answer sometimes. – Troggy Nov 30 '09 at 22:21
This feature rocks my world! – John Rudy Nov 30 '09 at 22:39
That answers one of my requests which was actually a duplicate of this question -… – ChrisF Nov 30 '09 at 22:44
Shame you have to click through to the question or answer though and can't get at the split from your profile page. – ChrisF Nov 30 '09 at 22:46
@ChrisF: absolutely; or that you can't click somewhere and have all up/down votes shown for every post on the page. – Ether Nov 30 '09 at 23:12
Is there a required rep score? I don't see it. – Henk Holterman Nov 30 '09 at 23:17
@Henk - If you follow the link in the question you'll see that you need a rep of 1000 to be able to use this feature. – ChrisF Nov 30 '09 at 23:21
Chris, you mean the link in the answer. But I found it, thanks. – Henk Holterman Nov 30 '09 at 23:40
Why the 1000 Rep requirement? – Move More Comments Link To Top Dec 1 '09 at 2:13
It would appear one can only fetch one set of vote stats per second. – Ether Dec 1 '09 at 4:16
