Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

If I get two answers that jointly answer the question (one directly answers the question and offers a work-around, and the other offers a thinking-out-of-the-square kind of answer), can I vote for both of them?

Perhaps I mean to accept both of them?

You cannot accept both, but you can upvote both.

There can only be one accepted answer that awards 15 reputation to the answerer, but you can upvote as many as you like, that awards 10 reputation points.

You can even upvote the accepted answer, awarding a total of 25 reputation points to the user.

Surely you can vote on questions you've asked...? or not? –  Michael Haren Feb 22 '10 at 14:14
    
@mic, you have 9 questions here on meta, why don't you try it? –  jmfsg Feb 22 '10 at 14:38

@Downvoter B/c I already have enough rep--my votes aren't restricted like a new, repless user –  Michael Haren Feb 22 '10 at 16:09
    
oh, ok, I didn't understand what you were saying –  jmfsg Feb 22 '10 at 17:29
    
I tried it since I don't have enough rep--and no, you can't immediately vote on your own questions. –  ohspite Aug 12 '11 at 13:55
