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

While I was trying to vote up an asnwer I recieved the following message:

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

When does this message appear? And what does it mean exactly !

Seems self explanatory. Is there any way that you would improve it to make it clearer? – Cody Gray May 4 '11 at 8:27
    
@Cody: I didn't know that allowed voting times are divided between questions and answers .. – Akram Shahda May 4 '11 at 8:41
up vote 3 down vote accepted

It means you can come back to vote on more answers in X hours, or you can vote on Y questions.

In other words, you've used up all of your votes for answers, and you still have Y votes left for questions.

Separate vote pools for questions and answers was implemented recently.

Are voting times divided between questions and answers ? – Akram Shahda May 3 '11 at 16:32
    
@Akram: No, voting times are per day. There are separate vote pools, however. – CanSpice May 3 '11 at 16:34

That mean, You can only vote on questions for today.

See Separate vote pools for questions and answers, which is newly implemented today.

You have 30 votes + 10 question votes / day now (previously there is only 30 votes limit)

Does that mean I have a total of 40 questions and answers votes per day. 0 - 40 for questions and 0 - 30 for answers ? – Akram Shahda May 4 '11 at 11:45
