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

What's going on here? Why can't I upvote it? Did I miss something? I've never seen this message before.

I have seen this several times before when a comment (or its parent post) has been deleted in the meanwhile. But since it's posted on Nov 16, I don't think that this is the case. Press F5 to be sure. – BalusC Dec 24 '10 at 22:05
Same thing. Can't touch it. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Dec 24 '10 at 22:32

We shouldn't have been showing upvote & flag icons beside comments for proposals that have advanced past the definition phase. They're gone now. Thanks :)

It seems like the proposal is now in the commitment stage and all of the comments are locked. I don't know how I missed that, but I think the error message could be worded a little differently to indicate this.
