the new 'Vote'/'Score' feature

Journal by ngairedith

hi Scott,
Is there any chance of enabling us to see who 'votes "up" (likes) our comments on posts? similar to how it shows on FB. This would show who is interested in the subject, who was helped by the comment or who agrees with what was said. This could lead to 2 or more of us working together to reach a solution

Obviously, this would not be popular for those giving a "down" vote' but in fact, a down vote is of little help on any comment if we don't know exactly what it is about the comment they do not agree with

I'm easing into the voting thing, and I'm encouraged by how it's getting used.
As of right now, there are 38 unique people who have used it, with a total of 289 votes (mostly up).

The main thing I want to encourage is quality questions and answers.

I'm modeling this after other communities with similar models. Some show who votes, others don't.

An upvote is very different than a downvote, and because of that, I'm considering showing who upvotes, but keeping downvotes anonymous.

thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.
