Here's a crop of a screen shot from the question list on the Meta Stack Overflow front page:

Look at that middle item. How can a question with 44 kviews have only one vote?!

Oh, wait. That's 1 kvotes. (I missed the "k".)

Can we make that stand out a bit more? The kviews seem to stand out a bit; why can't the kvotes? Bold? Red? A flashing border? Anything?

We could make them stand out by putting the k with the number, like we do with rep, but limiting the text to fit in the space:






and then take the 'k' off of the kvotes or kviews text.

    Indeed, and in response to the sure to come "you lose precision that way because the k takes up a character"; if it was 10k rather than 10.1k would that really make a difference Jan 6, 2014 at 14:36
  • It looks like this is what has been done.

  • @AlE., nice to see things done, and it only took 17 months. Jun 3, 2015 at 23:53
  • Well, not quite that long. It looks like it was addressed in the previous design refresh.

    Here's the answer about the fix: meta.stackexchange.com/a/232137/13295 Jun 4, 2015 at 21:19

Questions will really rarely hit the kvotes but I agree that they are barely noticeable as they are right now.

I think kviews should get the same treatment too since there are always more views than votes.

  • There's well over 50 such questions on Stack Overflow and at least two here. It's that rarity that calls for different treatment.

  • @AI It does, And I agree. Jan 3, 2014 at 14:02
  • Agree that views would benefit from the same change
