In the "Show vote summaries" tab, in the timeline of Please revert the line-height change!, I noticed that the daily vote summary included bookmarks:

Why are they there? Do they count as part of the daily vote summary?


Yes, setting a bookmark (called Favorite earlier) is a Vote. As such it is stored in the Votes table with a Votetypeid of 5.

You can also find those in SEDE:

The added value of having those Votes in SEDE as well is that you can list which users bookmarked that question. That is something the timeline will not tell you.

    Wait, Spam is a vote? I thought it was a flag! How exactly do you vote Spam on a post, and how is that different from flagging as Spam? Sep 9 '20 at 19:19

    @RobertColumbia not all votetypes are still used today. For example Close is not used anymore here. In SEDE there is a PendingFlags table. I assume the realdeal has a Flags table by now. Bit that is guess work.
