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

From time to time, I run out of votes for the day. When this happens, I am usually able to continue voting on comments without a problem.

When I went to upvote a comment in the last few minutes, the standard "Daily vote limit reached" box popped up.

Is this new? Have I just missed it in the past? (I checked the new features list and I couldn't find anything about it)

are you getting less than the full 30 votes during the day, or just not the full forty? – jcolebrand Jun 19 '11 at 21:51
@jcolebrand I got the full 40. When I've run out before, it hasn't seemed to effect the number of comment votes I could make, though. – jonsca Jun 19 '11 at 22:42

The daily limit for the comment votes is separated from the daily limit for voting on questions and answers. It just happened that you reached both the limits.

Hehe, I suppose I should read fewer questions. I had thought about that I might have reached some other limit simultaneously, but the timing of it was so close that I was sure it was related... Okay, thanks. – jonsca Jun 19 '11 at 23:22
@jonsca It happened to me too, and asked on the EL&U meta site. That is how I know it. :-) – kiamlaluno Jun 19 '11 at 23:45
