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.

StackOverflow is the only site I have enough reputation to be allowed to see the upvote/downvote split.

I wish I could do this on all StackExchange sites.

Could you please reduce or eliminate the amount of reputation required for this privilege?

Does it really matter? It's got to be the least exciting privilege you can get – Brad Mace Dec 20 '10 at 0:31
Why would you want that? – random Dec 20 '10 at 1:34
Okay, but you'll have to come up with an alternative for rewarding people that hit 1K rep. Too many t-shirts btw. – Uphill Luge Dec 20 '10 at 2:07
possible duplicate of Why do vote-counts require 1,000 reputation to see? – Jon Seigel Dec 20 '10 at 2:37
@JonSeigel, not a duplicate, because this here is a feature request, whereas that one was just asking why things were that way, tagged support. – MvG Jul 22 '12 at 23:29
@random. One thing that comes to mind is that on low traffic site a good answer can easly stop at two upvote. IMHO, knowing that the displayed 2 is +2/-0 or +3/-1 can help. Since many feel that they don't have to explain the -1 (so no comment stating what is wrong), losing even the info that the -1 is there in my view isn't desiderable. A -1 on a total of 3 votes can easly indicate that there IS an hidden pitfall somewhere in the proposed solution. – SPArchaeologist Jan 24 '13 at 10:47

That's just the rep amount you need to be able to see it easily.

IIRC, you can see the up/down-vote breakdown for any question by going to /posts/question-id/timeline.

For instance, you can see the breakdown for this question itself at http://meta.stackexchange.com/posts/72743/timeline.

(It's currently at +1/-1)

Which is even stranger - basically hide something you could know anyway? Why then? – SPArchaeologist Jan 24 '13 at 10:43
Maybe this proposal should then be change to make both visibilities to sync up in terms of required reputation; one way or another. – PlasmaHH Apr 23 '14 at 11:57
