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

What privileges are given to a 1000 reputation member of Stack Overflow?

The FAQ states that "Show total up and down vote counts" becomes available when you pass 1000 reputation, but I didn't see any change when I crossed the 1000 reputation mark. Can anybody tell me what changes occurred for me?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Somebody else apparently asked this same question a half hour later; there's also a good answer there – Michael Mrozek Sep 7 '10 at 7:19
up vote 2 down vote accepted

It means that when you click the number relating the number of votes that a question or answer has received you will get to see a breakdown.

So if the total is 2 up votes when you click it - you may see that it has actually had 3 up votes and 1 down vote.
