in thread Feature: Auto hide. Change: show node vote counts to all, not just logged in users.

Thanks for your input. Users have the ability to have custom CSS which may override any cosmetic changes, and then there are the associated accessability issues associated with such things. Perhaps some people need fonts to be a certain size in order to be able to read them at all. Having to change some setting/zoom to be able to see the content in question would, at least to me, be more annoying than reading the warning and clicking a link. Hiding such posts, displaying a warning and presenting an option to see the post content in the same way one can view reaped content seems like an extension of the method used here for a long time, to cater for a different use case. How do you feel about all users being able to see vote count/spread?

    Hmm, I don't think I've fully made up my mind yet about the vote counts... it seems that traditionally there isn't such an emphasis placed on them (only people who vote on nodes get to see the reputation, plus Best Nodes and Worst Nodes, I don't think they're displayed elsewhere?), so suddenly showing them might be considered too drastic. Hence my idea of using some other indicator. I'm just brainstorming here, but perhaps just a note at the top of the node where the vote count usually is saying that a certain threshold has been passed.

    As for CSS and settings for showing/hiding stuff, I think that it's very important what new visitors see (as Anonymous Monk), so there'd have to be a useful default.
