We can ask a new question if we don't find the same. –  hims056 Sep 24 '12 at 9:06
    
This is also your lack of research –  hims056 Sep 24 '12 at 9:11

@FurqanSafdar - When you ask a question, first search for similar questions. For example, when I search meta for your exact question name, the first 10 or so hits are the same question. If none of those work for you, link a bunch of them in your question and clarify why they fail to meet your needs. Then you shouldn't get down voted because you’re showing your research, right now it looks like you didn’t check before posting. –  Mike Sep 24 '12 at 11:29

up vote 5 down vote accepted

You get 40 votes if you vote for at least 10 questions, and those votes must be casted before you vote for 30 answers. For example, this means:

  • If you vote for 30 answers, and 0 questions, your daily limit is 30
  • If you vote for 40 questions, and 0 answers, your daily limit is 40
  • If you vote for 5 questions, 15 answers, 4 questions, and 15 answers (in that order), your daily limit is 39

When you get the message "you still have 5 votes," that is the number of votes you still have before to reach the daily limit. Suppose you voted for 25 answers, and you get that message; at that point, you can vote for questions, but you still have 5 votes left, and you cannot vote for 10 questions.

@FurqanSafdar - Closing the question is not a punishment for you, but SO's way to link the questions to get them organized. –  Bo Persson Sep 24 '12 at 9:38
