Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Sign up
Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Is there any chance that the following methods:

  • Total votes on questions (N.B. NOT total score but total number of votes)
  • Total votes on answers

Could be added to the API?

There are no threats to confidentiality of voting trends with these methods and no bad could come from their introduction.

Other than adding this so you can track badge progress, what benefit does it have? – Rebecca Chernoff Mar 19 '11 at 14:57
Other than tracking badge progress what benefit do: creation_date, last_access_date, up_vote_count, down_vote_count have? I like statistics and this is just another one that is nice to have, are there and real adverse reasons not to include the above methods in the API? – Myles Gray Mar 19 '11 at 15:06
