Now that we were able to see votes without voting, it was a bit of a pain that the button didn't have any kind of indicator on whether you have voted on an opinion or not. So all you could do is mash the button and realize "yeah I probably voted on this one"
But now it actually indicates with a color change on the arrow of the button. Yay! Thanks!
I don't know what to ask. Maybe, have you noticed?
I actually think hiding the votes was a nice idea because it would keep people voting without trending the votes. It probably sounds silly but I feel like people have a natural desire to go with trends so if they saw people upvoting something they may just go along with it where not seeing the votes made it feel like people were giving a more personal vote.
I really don't like being able to see the amount of votes in each section before I vote. I don't think that adds anything constructive. It just encourages people to follow others' responses. It would be nice if there were a "See ratings" option that didn't allow up/downvoting afterwards, for people that just wanted to know what the votes for the comment were.
