Help UserEcho to choose correct word for voter block

At this moment UserEcho use "scores" word to describe difference between positive and negative votes for feedback.

Please help us to find most suitable word
How about calling positive votes "Yeas" and negative votes "Nays" just like when a vote is taken at a physical meeting. All in favor say Yea" .. all opposed say "Nay".

Votes? P.S. There's a typo in the title, it's word, not world ;)

now it's scores because it means difference between positive and negative votes

You have a point there. Though one negative vote consumes one positive, right? So they're still votes.. Imho, dunno, I'd call them votes so that people wouldn't have to think about what a "score" a "yay" and a "nay" is, which makes things more complicated. One very popular project called stackoverflow.com too has "votes up" and "votes down", but the total is still votes :) Don't mind me, I'm just thinking out loud ;)
