I recently hit 1k rep on SO, and so gained the privilege of splitting the total score on a post, into its respective upvotes and downvotes.

Is there a way to get a question's score permanently displayed in this way? I seem to remember there was a user-script? I can't seem to find it now.


  • The system limits you to one query per second. So even if you had the script, there'd be significant lag before all the scores are expanded on a question with multiple answers. – Mysticial Mar 3 '13 at 4:03

    @Mysticial Just for the question would be nice though... Nice going with the Pi thing btw ;) – Danny Beckett Mar 3 '13 at 4:03
  • I don't recall a UserScript for permanent display, only the one that just steals the information from the timeline of the post so users without the privilege can see them too. – animuson Mar 3 '13 at 4:10
  • @animuson That's the user-script I was referring to. It never worked for me at the time, I was hoping to try it again now that I have the priv... but I guess from your explanation of how it worked, it still won't work. – Danny Beckett Mar 3 '13 at 4:11
  • @animuson Please see the new answer. – Danny Beckett Mar 19 '13 at 2:22

The reason that this requires 1k rep in the first place is that it is more expensive to get individual vote counts than it is to get the total +/- votes.

This would ruin the point of the privelege.

Why is it a privilege to view vote counts?
