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

This morning, every time I've voted for an answer, I've gotten a popup telling I haven't voted for a question recently. Since that's an extra click to dismiss, and since I haven't seen a question worth voting up recently, my first reaction is to stop voting on answers rather than go on an extensive hunt for questions worth voting up.

Please make this popup less obtrusive. Either make it fade away quickly on its own without being clicked on, or make it only show up every n'th answer vote.

Update: Ok, it does fade away on its own, just slower than I expected.

This is not a bug - please change to either Feature Request or Discussion. – Shadow Wizard May 25 '11 at 11:51
"...and since I haven't seen a question worth voting up recently..." - if they're all that bad then why don't you vote some of them down? Do you know it's now free to downvote questions? So, when you do see any bad questions then please give them the downvote they deserve. – DMA57361 May 25 '11 at 12:01
Because there is a difference between a question deserving of a downvote and a question not deserving of any vote at all. – Paul Tomblin May 25 '11 at 12:34
up vote 2 down vote accepted

You will only get the message is you are voting a lot on answers only.

Try voting on questions, if a question creates an answer worth voting up, then the question might be worth an upvote as well.

Also, if all you see is bad questions, then please downvote them.
