When I log into StackOverflower proper, this is what I see:
I am inclined to think that perhaps the Vote-count is unnecessary information on the front page
I.E how about we make it look like so:
The reason is that the vote-score is premature information to the viewer at the moment he/she is at the front page. I never even read the question, but I'm being told it's bad or good. Why can't I read it first and see?
Furthermore, there is another factor at play. And it is the view-count + the answer count.
If we notice, the high-quality questions attract more-views and more answers. That is shown above - 108 views for a +17 question and 93 for a +12 views question. Thus, we can infer some qualitative information already( I have hunch that 93 views is likely good ).
I realize that old questions get bumped up, and that's where the 24-hour number comes in. So, we will still see view count on the famous "RegEx match open tags except XHTML self-contained tags"
This way, another benefit may be that fresh questions are easily distinguished from classic ones that got edited.
The method of "hiding" votes can simply be to show no symbol at all.
