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

In the comments on a question of mine on SO, a couple people mentioned they did not like the downvotes I was receiving. How can they tell I got a downvote, other than comparing the vote rating over time? Is there a button somewhere I can't find or is it just because it is my question? Perhaps I cannot see some information because the question is now closed?
