Stack Overflow is the only site I have enough reputation to be allowed to see the upvote/downvote split.
I wish I could do this on all Stack Exchange sites.
Could you please reduce or eliminate the amount of reputation required for this privilege?
That's just the rep amount you need to be able to see it easily.
IIRC, you can see the up/down-vote breakdown for any question by going to
For instance, you can see the breakdown for this question itself at
(It's currently at +1/-1)
You can view vote totals with a simple userscript. No 1k rep is required and on sites where you have 1k, this does essentially nothing.
With that there's no requirement at all.
Anyway, I think association bonus is a good threshold for seeing vote split. Whoever has an assoc-bonus can edit community-wikis on a newly-joined site.
An alternative option, that I suggested here:
Make it a privilege to earn the view vote counts privilege on every site.
This could have a higher threshold than the normal view vote counts privilege, for example 7.5k. That means, if a user reaches 7.5k on any site, then they can split votes on any site in the network.
