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

The other day, I used up all my votes trying to earn the Sportsmanship badge.

Okay, so I was voting all the answers I could. Obviously, I only voted the ones which I truly thought were good, but was jealous, so didn't vote up, I'm being REALLY honest here =)

Anyway, so then I nearly used up all my votes on one of the questions, and it said that 'You have 1 vote left today'. So then, of course, I switched to another question, and upvoted an answer with more votes than mine. Note that that was my last vote for that day. And then, it said You haven't voted on questions in a while, questions need votes too!.

I think that's a bit of an incorrect statement, since I already used up all my votes anyway.

Is this intentional?

"but was jealous, so didn't vote up"...are you saying you downvoted every answer you thought was truly good? – Bart Nov 29 '12 at 6:14
@Bart didn't upvote, didn't downvote. – think123 Nov 29 '12 at 6:22
I was going to say, downvotes won't get you the sportsmanship badge. :) That whole passage reads a bit strange though. – Bart Nov 29 '12 at 6:24
I guess you gave up pretty quickly. still no sportsmanship badge :-) – Aaron Bertrand May 16 '13 at 14:50

Well, you will have more votes tomorrow... Consider it advice for the future. I don't really see any need to code in a check to see how many votes you actually have left. The message isn't worded in any way that you should vote on questions now, just that you should also consider questions when voting.
