Which reminds me of something else that would be nice: to be able to see the total vote count on a node, instead of just the reputation.
Yes, that'd be cool, too. (I have a little project related to this coming down the pipe. Stay tuned.)

Perlmonks already stores this information and if it were meant to be public, it would be. Are you going to attempt to compute this somehow? Perhaps by some periodicp polling of the reputation to notice changes?

    He's in pmdev diotalevi therefore he can put together a patch that will directly access the vote table. And I dispute the claim that "if it were meant to be public it would be" it reminds me of that old saying, "if we were meant to fly we would have wings". Neither of course are true. A little ingenuity and planning can go a long way to overcoming such issues. Whether zdogs plans come to fruition is another story of course, but until we see the patch we can't possibly evaluate its merits now can we?

      Oh I'd like the change, myself. I just don't recall there ever being a moment where someone said, "Yes, Ok! Let's do this!" I was thinking that if this were ever exposed then it should be a pm-side thing and not what I was imagining - some sort of polling agent to count changes.
