Daily vote limit reached; come back in 19 hours.  

Why should I be asked to 'come back' if my vote limit has been reached.. am I asked to 'go away'?

couldn't the message be 'Daily vote limit reached; Limit will be reset in 19 hours' .... or am I being too sensitive?

If you imagine someone saying that to you with tongue firmly in cheek, maybe it won't seem so harsh.... – Michael Todd Jun 2 '10 at 4:49
Try again in 19 hours? – YOU Jun 2 '10 at 4:51
i don't see any real difference between "try again..." and "come back..."; i think both are friendlier than "limit will be reset..." which sounds very cold and computer-y. ryan, i think you're being too sensitive here. no offense. if the community decides it should be changed, i'd prefer the "try again" wording over "limit will be reset". – quack quixote Jun 2 '10 at 5:36
of course, I've been interacting with computers more than people lately :).... I actually prefer 'Try again' myself (i was the one who upvoted S.Mark's comment first) – Ryan Fernandes Jun 2 '10 at 5:44
How about "Daily vote limit reached; new votes arrive in 19 hours" – devinb Jun 2 '10 at 8:07
or "Daily vote limit reached for the next 19 hours" – devinb Jun 2 '10 at 8:10

Maybe we should request a filling bucket algorithm. You get another vote every 48 minutes, with the maximum being 30 votes at any given time. If you haven't been here for a day you have 30 votes you can use immediately, but then rather than waiting another 19 hours, you'll get another one in less than an hour.
