Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

On our profile page it lists how many upvotes and downvotes we've handed out. What I'd also find interesting is to see how many votes of each type we've received. Is that possible?

+1, great idea. – Kip Jul 10 '09 at 2:00

I don't see why this couldn't be possible. There already is a very long-way-around for this by going through your reputation list and keeping track of all the numbers there and adding them up...but also this wouldn't track things that were deleted.

Your reputation is basically this, summarized as a single number.

I don't think we want to show upvote / downvote received count, as it will lead to heartache and more support emails than we already get.

it is EXTREMELY HIGHLY CORRELATED. As in, nearly perfect correlation. – Jeff Atwood Jul 10 '09 at 11:55
It really isn't. The higher up you go on relative ranking, the greater the number of votes for which no rep was awarded (ie above the daily cap). Some users have won no bounties. Others a lot. Sorry, the but the idea that someone might complain cos their reputation is 10 out from 10*upvotes is, well, ridiculous. – cletus Jul 10 '09 at 14:21
You know it'll happen though. – womp Jul 10 '09 at 15:48
