The /tools/vote-hot/ page of the 10k tools breaks down votes by type. However, the two letter abbreviations are far from being self-explanatory.

Screenshot of the page, featuring clear comments like "up:11" and not so clear comments like "fv:1"

I guess "up" are upvotes, "fv" are favorites, "dn" (not pictured) are downvotes. I can't quite guess what the rest is, however, and my normal approach of hovering is useless here.

What kinds of votes are listed on these pages? What does each abbreviation mean?

up vote 11 down vote accepted

Had to go look at the code for this because I couldn't parse some of them either.

ac = Accepted
up = UpVote
dn = DownVote
of = Offensive Flag
fv = Favorite
cl = Vote to Close
op = Vote to Reopen
bs = Bounty Started (on questions only)
bc = Bounty Closed (this vote is cast on the answer that receives the bounty)
dl = Vote to Delete
ud = Vote to Undelete
sp = Spam Flag
md = Inform Moderator Flag

Any chance of getting hover text added? –  Thomas Owens Sep 3 '10 at 14:45
