Hacker News new | comments | show | ask | jobs | submit login

Off topic but what is the HN "share" icon on the right sliding box supposed to show? Up votes or submissions or comments? It's reading 0 right now so either way it doesn't seem to be working (unless it's just me).

Anyone have an idea?

It would appear upvotes: http://www.hn-button.com/

Don't extra submissions result in more points?
