Do not show the score for users during primaries

On the elections page, candidates with a negative number of votes show zero votes until I specifically request the vote count, either by voting or by explicitly requesting it.

I'm using Safari 5 on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2.

  • Note, it's not just negatives. It's all votes. It seems that the totals just aren't keeping up or being calculated correctly. But the relative position is still seemingly correct (high totals have high votes, low totals are mostly downvotes, etc)... – ircmaxell Nov 14 '11 at 20:15

  • @random - So the solution is showing inaccurate votes? Really? – Moshe Nov 14 '11 at 20:19
  • You don't think you'd be swayed at all by how others have voted? – random Nov 14 '11 at 20:25

    @random That doesn't work in the positive direction? – user154510 Nov 14 '11 at 20:31

    @random: Not sure I see the logic there. The relative voting is still there, so wouldn't that sway people as well? Why not just hide it and let users click to see the votes if you're trying to prevent herd mentality? – ircmaxell Nov 14 '11 at 20:32
  • @irc - Well said. – Moshe Nov 14 '11 at 20:45
  • I still disagree with that feature request and @random I don't see how this makes it any better. – The Unhandled Exception Nov 14 '11 at 22:08
