It would be really useful to consolidate the vote counts of all merged ideas into the parent ticket. This would allow an at-a-glance view of how many people really want this feature instead of having to build a report to continue to count the number of votes in total.
Thanks for the idea!
If you merge ideas together, the parent idea will display the total vote count of the combined ideas. Note that if the same user voted separately on the merged ideas, only one of their votes will count. This ensures a more effective total vote count by user.
