It appears that now upvotes on CW posts appear on the reputation tab of the profile page:

It would be nice to have some sort of indicator that these are upvotes on CW posts - when I first saw them I didn't understand why I have upvotes with no reputation attached, first thing in the day...

Some sort of indicator would make these more visible.


I agree. Perhaps something like this?

mock-up of wiki upvote - 1

(Note, it would have the standard red if it is a downvote)

Or this?

mock-up of wiki upvote - 2

(Again, with the standard red if it is a downvote)

Personally, I'm partial to the first (since we're used to lower-case lettering for indicators such as this, but I can go either way.

The point is, that empty space can be used for something to make the experience better for those lines.

  • Visually, I like either one. Clear and to the point. I favour CW as it is a common acronym in the network and the wiki notation by itself may be more confusing. – Oded Apr 14 '12 at 17:35

    And maybe also something similar when the reputation cap has been reached? That's a bit difficult if one gets partial rep (like 4 points out of 10) for some upvote. – Arjan Apr 14 '12 at 18:02

    Disagree with Oded. Not only are the lower-case letters of wiki much more aesthetically pleasing, but I don't think most people know what the CW acronym means. Heck, I'd have to spend a while scratching my head if I saw that. Everyone knows what a wiki is. CW looks like something else. – Cody Gray Apr 15 '12 at 9:54
