I have created a page here to list who are the top voters on your posts and who you voted most for.

 

I am planning on adding a list of your top most voted topics/replies.

 

I am not quite happy with just showing avatars (if you hover the mouse over an avatar you see the number of votes given/received) and thinking perhaps a list would be better and quicker to read.

 

There's a link in the menu on top of the page, next to your public profile link to this page.

Interesting.....

 

I see one avatar ranked highly for both votes given and received, and I'm curious as to whether that is any sort of indication we could be good mates IRL.

 

And I'm <jokingly> deeply hurt and offended that someone I add a +1 to consistently hasn't done the same for me!

 

The current layout is a good 'for your interest' view where details are not really of significant interest, and this may be more than sufficient as we are not likely to do anything with the information.  A lot of us geeks would likely want more information in a table.  You could possibly mock one up and post a screenshot to solicit opinions, but it might be a case of the 80:20 rule kicking in...

Thanks for moving it to the left - I kept clicking it accidentally earlier as it was in the spot I'm used to for "New forum posts" ;-)

Something else to consider is the ratio of votes to posts.  A long time user may have 10,000 posts but spouts even more rubbish than I do and has only a handful of votes, and a relatively new user might have 1000 posts but 500 votes.  If you felt that idea had merit, you would likely need a minimum number of posts to give some validity to the statistics.  This of course may also be an area not desirable to explore if ill feeling may result.

 

it might not work as the voting system is a lot newer than the counted number of posts.

@Dynamic the post ratio wouldn't really work unless if it was implemented to count ratio after the voting system got implemented (2012 IIRC).

Ratio sounds nice for that one. Another useful ratio: plus ones given to user Vs total plus ones given by the giver. Couple of further comments:

No mouse on mobile platforms. For that reason I'd like to see stats under each avatar.

Raw stats could be good:
- total posts by user
- total plus ones given by user
- total plus ones given by user to you
Sometimes raw stats convey more info.

Another problem is that the GZ mobile site doesn't have the buttons to +1 posts. Plenty of times I have wanted to +1 a post, but can't be bothered switching to the desktop version to do so. So a ratio of +1 given out Vs +1 received would have to consider that users ratio of desktop site use compared to mobile site use.

 

I still like the ratio idea though.
