How are daily allowed votes separated between answers and questions?

I've just used 30 votes of my allowed 40 ones today. Most of them were on questions. Even though, I am now obligated to use all of my remaining votes on more questions and restricted from voting on answers.

The rules of daily votes separating is still ambiguous to me. I have read that the last 10 votes each day must always be on questions. Isn't better if there was a minimum votes cast per day for questions/answers?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You ask why it's like this, or do you ask for a change? – Shadow Wizard May 8 '11 at 19:02
@Shadow Wizard: I am not sure I understand those rulescompletely . However, if those rules say that the last 10 votes each day must be only on question, then I think that they need some refinement .. – Akram Shahda May 8 '11 at 19:09
OK, so you better change the tags to "feature-request", that's why I asked. :) – Shadow Wizard May 8 '11 at 19:52

New behavior:

  1. Everyone gets a total of 30 votes.
  2. You may up to 10 extra question votes.
  3. Warnings remains simple ... (5 vote remaining, 4 vote remaining ...)
  4. Question votes may be cast at any time during the day. However once you reach the N votes remaining warnings, stuff is set in stone. A question voting spree at the end will still count down.
