Oh hell yes, poll results are now to tenths of a percent. But @staff can we pretty please have the raw counts?


wildgifthorses: I think you can get raw counts from the API

Yeah, and you can also get the vote percentages to six decimal places in web debugger, thanks to a truly wild web design choice:


Sticking the raw percentage directly into the width attribute is just a delightfully bonkers way to implement that, and I love it. And with six decimal places that’s enough to derive the raw count unless you go really mega-viral (and maybe even then it just adds more decimal places).

But it would be nice to have a way I can see right on the dash without having to tinker.
