Looks great man!

Thanks! Feels a little weird having the numbers floating out there but I think I'm liking it more and more

There's a couple more things we could think about trying.

inline icons as tall as the votes text and separated by a space or two and right aligned example:

 123 :%
  24 :)

Or scores in between the voting buttons (old reddit?):

   :%
123 / 24
   :)

Or maybe what's here now is legit but the score shouldn't be clickable?

I can make the score not clickable, but I think it's better for it to be. I don't see why not.

What about the icons on top and the scores below?

:% :)

123 24

That way we get away from the appearance of an up/down system, so people are less likely to bring their bad habits over and will immediately recognize our voting system is different then just up/down.

You mean bigger text or smaller icons?

Nice! I like it as long as it's not too wide. I suppose the score font size could go as low as 10px to make it all fit if we had to, like for 1000+ votes. Maybe we should mock that up and see. If the buttons have too big of a big gap between them it might look bad. I think we'd have to shrink the score font size to do it right, but that's chill with me.

Maybe bigger text but smaller icons for sure or they wouldn't look much different than what's there now. Font-rendered icons would work great in this scenario. Having smaller voting buttons sounds weird though, I'm over it.

Haha alright cool. I'll probably try out the left/right arrangement instead of the up/down one soon-ish
