Vote count of 1000 and above is truncated with ellipsis (...).

I do not really have an issue with this one. If I see this, I'm going to assume that this is an interesting question / answer. However, stats geeks may disagree; and if this is the case, how can it be improved?

    Perhaps if the vote count exceeds 1000, it becomes displayed in thousands? (3,422 -> 3.4k | 3,950 -> 3.9k | 1,000 -> 1k) – Chris Forrence Aug 16 '13 at 5:08
  • @ChrisForrence That's a good suggestion, although that would make it inconsistent with the Desktop mode view. – geff_chang Aug 16 '13 at 5:09

    @geff_chang I'm fairly sure the desktop homepage already shows kviews. – michaelb958--GoFundMonica Aug 16 '13 at 5:13

    Upvotes on questions could be limited to 999, or just wait, so highly upvoted questions are nowadays closed – Danubian Sailor Aug 16 '13 at 5:24
  • @ŁukaszLech not if they're locked. – Cole Johnson Sep 30 '13 at 22:32

As of version 0.1.44 coming out later tonight the app will both truncate numbers to something like "1.2k" and dynamically resize the text to force it to fit, if needed:
