Idea:

It would be better for grasping degree of approval well, if Approval rating (%) could be shown on each idea.
The rating would be calculated as below:

(Score / Votes) * 100
# round off to one decimal place

For example,
----------------------------------------
Score: 50
Votes: 70
Approval rating: 71.4 (%)
----------------------------------------
Score: 100
Votes: 150
Approval rating: 66.7 (%)
----------------------------------------

I think we would be able to grasp degree of approval more easily than now.

I find the votes to be a good aid while processing ideas.

new -> considered

Elsewhere @RayWoods said "Really the voting element is just a bit of fun".

So it might be good to think "Showing Approval rating is also a bit of fun".

Those numbers would be incorrect if you take into account "read but not voted on" and "Don't care" button. I cannot see the value for the members when ultimately the final decision rests in someone else's hands.

Votes here do not govern the outcome of the community. Poorly rated (voted-on) ideas have been implemented as well as Highly rated (voted-on) ideas have been rejected.

Just because it might be a good idea doesn't mean it's going to fit into the plan.

Thank you for your support!

Precisely, each idea is not posted at the same time.
There are what were posted about one year ago, and there are what were posted about a half year ago, and there are what were posted recently...

So, the quantity of 'Votes' (= denominator) are quite different each other.
Then we cannot grasp degree of approval properly by looking at only 'Score' (= numerator).

Whilst I'm sure Clem takes the popularity or not of a suggestion into account, I doubt this is the over-riding factor for approval or rejection. This is likely to be whether the suggestion is relevant, practicable and/or fits into the aims and feature set of Mint. Your suggestion wouldn't add any benefits imo.
