Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Even if I ideally can't do that due to low reputation (currently 426, but need 1000).

After clicking I got a popup box with error message:

If I remove my vote, I'm still able to try to get votes count.

(there is actually finger-like cursor, its a tricks of gnome-screenshot)

As you can see, works on both answer and question.

Looks to be like part of the new voting system; as I upvoted your question here, the number faded out, then back in, for an accurate vote count I'm assuming. So the problem occurs after any vote change. – Ryan O'Hara Mar 17 '12 at 20:53

@minitech There's live updates for votes now. The fading happens because you're (unnecessarily) getting notified of your own vote. – a cat Mar 17 '12 at 20:58
    
Definitely seems to be something a bit buggy. I tried up-voting your question and it immediately gave me the "error occurred" message. I reloaded the page and then it let me upvote. As minitech pointed out, it faded out the number and put the new one (at the time I did it, it was 5, then faded into 6). But when I clicked on the 6, the +/- details didn't reflect the change, showing +5/-0. I reloaded again, checked the details and it still showed +5/-0 (even though the "6" was still correct). – Ben Lee Mar 17 '12 at 21:00
    
I can't repro this, but I'm not entirely sure that I understood the question... – Cody Gray Mar 18 '12 at 7:50
    
@CodyGray instead of clickable number I should get number in plain text – om-nom-nom Mar 18 '12 at 10:33
    
@CodyGray and I guess you can't reproduce that cause your repo is far far above 1000 points ;) – om-nom-nom Mar 18 '12 at 10:45

Good catch - vote expansion will only be wired up if you have the correct amount of reputation.
