When a user reaches 1000 reputation they become an established user. With that comes the ability to see the number of up and down votes on any post. While I have no problem with this privelege being reserved for established users when it comes to other people's posts, I think that a user should be able to see the up/down vote count on their own posts, regardless of their reputation. Is there a reason why they can't? Is the reasoning that, if the post is not CW, they should be able to figure it out using reputation changes?

    $\begingroup$ There is a feature-request on meta.SO, which is marked as (status-declined): Please enable low-rep users to easily breakout up and down votes on their own questions. One of the answers there mentions a bookmarklet which should enable this feature for low-rep users, too. (I have not tried it.) $\endgroup$ Sep 17, 2013 at 6:16

    $\begingroup$ +1 because I did not know about this feature until I read your post. $\endgroup$ Sep 17, 2013 at 14:06
  • $\begingroup$ I'm going to bring this up internally to see if views have changed. It's still something you should earn, but we keep that, as you can only see vote counts on your own posts. Please be patient, it'll be about a week before we meet again for feature stuff. $\endgroup$
