What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When you click on the vote total to load the upvote / downvote totals, the tooltip is not changed from "View upvote / downvote totals", leading the user to believe you can click it again to load more totals. This will confuse the user*. It should not say anything, or "5000 upvotes / 5000 downvotes".

* if the user cares about such a small, unimportant bug....

up vote 3 down vote accepted

After careful consideration, I've made it so the tooltip will display 5000 upvotes / 5000 downvotes after fetching the counts, regardless of actual votes.

Hopefully, this will really confuse the user*.

Just kidding - it's been changed to reflect the actual up and down vote counts on a given post.

* I care about any vote bugs :)
