In a fit of outrage, responding to a system-generated "slap on the face", I posted an obviously poor question here on Meta SE. In the early stages of my attempt to rectify things, I have come across this answer to an unrelated (or indirectly related) question. The answerer points to his/her own question's revision history as an example of how a poor question, after a series of edits, became a good one.

I have started studying said history but I don't get any sense on how the voting changed over time. I think that, on any given question (or answer), I can only ever see the latest net vote. Is it possible (I think not) or wouldn't it be useful to be able to see the snapshot vote tally corresponding to each edit?

(I have examined several of the suggested "Questions that may already have your answer" and the titles of the "Similar Questions" and think this is not a duplicate. I am, however, at your mercy.)
