I don't know it is good idea or not but as an user when I go to some question and couldn't find good answer there I tend to look into the sidebar questions. It shows me number of upvotes for each questions, but doesn't say number of answers it has. So if I want to know if that question is resolved or at least answered I have to click and go into each of them.
I think it's good if I can see number of answers for each question rather than their upvotes, and decide whether to go to that question or not. I am more interested in seeing answers than knowing how many upvotes each questions got (in sidebar questions). Or may be display both of them if feasible?
What are your thoughts?
Updated Request: Show number of answers as tooltip in addition to the number of votes in sidebar questions. (Thanks @ShadowWizard)
