Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 was browsing around photo se, reading and voting some quality answers and suddenly got greeted by this:

Come back to vote on more answers in 10 hours, or use your 10 remaining question votes now

Previously I've had warnings when I reach the total daily vote limit, but this came out of nowhere.

I still do get a warning when I have 5 (or less) question votes left. Should there be a similar notification for answer votes?

A side question: is this a new feature? Didn't see any mention in the vote limits FAQ post.

Sure, the warnings are now back and work as they always did.

also see: Please don't require answer votes to be cast before question votes

Good points in the other question. Seeing the overall process (at any time) sounds more reasonable than having a "Hold your horses! 5 answer votes left!" notification popping up; which would, though, be more worry-free than the current "Too bad you didn't count how many votes you've used, they're all gone now! See you in 10 hours (or maybe vote some questions)." – koiyu May 3 '11 at 15:47
