On the front page of any SE site every question has tallies for Votes, Answers and Views. However, Votes does not properly tally the actual amount of votes, rather it shows the net total of vote values.
A million positive versus an equal amount of negative votes will show 0, a misleading number for a VERY active question.
Would there be a better way to represent the actual question activity?
EDIT: As suggested, what I would prefer the number to say is the total number of votes - positive and negative. It's a fairer indicator of activity.
