I don't want to see WHO did the voting. I can see why that's hidden. I just want to see HOW OFTEN it's been voted up/down, you know like with the Answers.
Why is that information not given? It shows us the feedback columns and the cumulative amount across all your hubs all-time.
Why should it be some mystery about the up and down vote frequency? It's not for Answers, so why is it for hubs?
Also, along this line, all those buttons down there. Why can't we see how many times someone hit the share button, for example. Or the print button? Or how many times it's been bookmarked, or how many times people subscribe to our RSS feed?
I tried using Google Analytics for the in-page feature, but it's pointless for this as it just shows the same percentage for like all the buttons and the tags, etc.
I guess I don't understand why so much potentially useful information is hidden. How am I to know what I'm doing right or wrong or what needs to be improved if I can't see the information about what's going on?
And considering everything has randomness in it, I can't even use the scores as a guide.
You may be interested in knowing that this feature was available in the past but was removed.
Good question. As far as I can see, the risk of abuse is pretty obvious - people could gang up against someone by voting them down. Multiple account holders could use each of their accounts to continuously vote down. It could be very intimidating; Hubbers have left the site for less. But I don't positively know the answer.
That's sad. I simply can't understand anyone leaving because their hubs were voted down. Still, if that information could only be known to the authors, then I couldn't really see the negative effects. For me, it'd only make me want to try harder.
EXACTLY. Plus it would be actual information so I'd know, or at least have a much strong indication of why, say, a hub is lagging in either views or score. Maybe the first readers didn't like it. Maybe it's even been flagged, indicating I'm walking too close to a line the community/doesn't like.
Right now, I'm just shooting in the dark, trying to "play the game" without knowing what the score is and how to "improve my play".
I can't improve if I don't know I'm screwing up.
Because people kept obsessing about it, so admin decided it would be better if that part couldn't be seen. They say it's a minor element in scoring but nothing site users should worry about.
