Is there a specific reason why we are not showing an individual votes summary with their date and time?

    You posted partial screenshot for some reason. The votes are more to the right, in the "comment" column. For example, Here is a full screenshot of the timeline of one of your answers. Dec 21, 2022 at 11:44
  • @ShadowWizardChasingStars where's vote exact time? I only see a daily summary. Dec 21, 2022 at 11:47
  • @FranckDernoncourt that's correct, timeline only showing daily summary, by design. To see exact times, only place is the user's profile. Dec 21, 2022 at 11:49

    In theory this would let someone guess who downvoted someone - by looking at rep change. This would be annoying to do, but plausible

    @JourneymanGeek, correct but we can show only date and time.

  • Can you state the reason why you want the system to show exact date and time? The point as stated above by Journeyman_Geek stands for the opposite opinion. Also if you want the system to show date and time tag it as [feature-request] too Dec 21, 2022 at 12:24

    My question is still: why not show? I wanted to understand, as per commnet, I can understand, we can not show who voted but why we are not showing time?

    Does this answer your question? On the timeline view for questions, display the type of vote and when it was cast - declined just over 2 years ago.

Any specific reason why we are not showing individual votes summary with their date and time?

Yes, there are cases of posts with hundreds and even thousands of votes, so having thousands of items in the timeline will just clutter it and make it useless, impossible to see the other events.

Having only daily summary makes perfect sense to me, both showing useful information, without cluttering the timeline.

I really think it should stay this way.

To see full list of votes on a post, with the time, you can go to the post author's profile page and it would be in their "reputation" tab.

    I seen that thousands of votes post's timeline, major are single vote per day, ex, but because of the daily summary, it shows the date only not the exact time. Make sense, an option is only author's profile.
