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 hit my daily limit of up votes, but the message box says "Try again in 3 hours". That would be 4:30 PM PDT.

Seems like an odd time to reset my daily limit. Is the daily limit automatically reset on a specific hour or is it per user or what?

It's not exactly three hours; it resets at 5:00 PM PDT, which is 0:00 UTC.

Okay, the UTC makes sense, I figured it wasn't exactly 3 hours, but even 4PM or 5PM didn't click -- but I didn't think about UTC. – quip Oct 30 '09 at 20:53
Yep. Keep in mind that it'll change to 4 PM next week when DST ends, though. – mmyers Oct 30 '09 at 20:54
