Thank you for checking! :-)

I agree with the previous posts, I'd like to see the plus and minus counts, too. After all they indicate wether or not the general opinion on a given node is unanimous or controversal.

But that shouldn't be restricted to one's own nodes, I'd like to see them displayed every time the count is displayed. They might even be worth an own node (best nodes, worst nodes and most controversal nodes).

What do vroom and the others think?

    As an incurable stats fiend, my first thought was "Cool, more stats!"

    But on second thought, do we really want to encourage controversy by publicly quantifying it?   There will always be disagreements and that's truly A Good Thing(TM), but I could do without a Most Controversial Nodes node.

    Update: s/encourage controversy/encourage more controversy/
    inspired by atl's thoughts below

    Update 2: I do agree with tye who suggested above that each Monk might benefit from seeing the swing on his/her own nodes.

      Well, not more or less than already encouraged by displaying the reputation totals. But I think there are a lot more stats and information junkies online here ;-).

      Just my two cents ...
