Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I tried to upvote a COMMENT, and I got a little red error box (like those that say you can't vote for your own post) that said this comment is "not eligible for voting or flagging". I found it here, the all of the comments on Rex M's post. Is this a new feature? why aren't the comment eligible?

Also not found, anyone named Rex... – Ian Elliott Jul 30 '09 at 1:15

The comment was most likely deleted by the time you tried to vote for it.

that explains it – Gordon Gustafson Jul 30 '09 at 1:24

akf is close, but i think the actual issue in this case was that the answer the comment was attached to was deleted.

If i recall correctly, when you attempt to up-vote a deleted comment, you get a message telling you explicitly that the comment was deleted.

This is an example of a question migrated to meta for which comments (in the original site) are not eligible for voting or flagging.

Incidentally, I just gave the 200th upvote to a certain comment :)

Slightly different circumstances here, but nonetheless a good contribution for completeness. – Ian Elliott Jul 30 '09 at 13:26
