Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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 just cast my last vote of the day. But when I did, I received this message:

Daily vote limit reached; come back in 2 hours

Daily vote limit reached; come back in 2 hours

However, this was my last vote. I don't need to come back in 2 hours! The vote still stands.

The box should probably only appear if I cannot vote anymore, or the wording should be changed.

I think it's good that it is shown on your last vote. It's not saying "Come back in 2 hours to make this vote count", it's saying "Come back in 2 hours to start voting again". That way, you know you've used up your votes and how long you need to wait before you can vote again without needing to fail a vote.

If a wording change is needed, I think it would actually be in the first sentence. I'd suggest summat like the following, to hopefully illustrate more clearly that the limit was attained post-vote.

Daily vote limit now reached; come back in 2 hours.

Same here. This is by-design I think – Pëkka Nov 24 '10 at 21:59

I'd upvote you for "Daily vote limit now reached", but I can't for obvious reasons :-) – The Unhandled Exception Nov 24 '10 at 22:08
