This question already has an answer here:

I just went ahead and voted on some questions, answers and comments on UX. Upon voting on an answer, notification said exactly this: You have 5 votes left today. And when I voted 5 more times on questions/answers, I had some votes for comments left, apparently, which I then used up too.

Technically, I still had votes after the Daily vote limit reached. Vote again in 22 hours message appeared. Those votes were comment votes. It wasn't clear enough. I was in doubt, so I decided to upvote another comment and succeeded. After a few more times, "vote limit reached" appeared again, now in regard to comment votes, but with no such explicit mention.

So do I have votes left or do I not?

  • Honestly though, who cares? If you've reached your vote limit on anything, you've done your job; now, the purpose of the vote limit in the first place is to encourage you to do something else. Go outside and smell some flowers or watch a sunset... – Aaron Bertrand Jan 15 '14 at 2:39

    @AaronBertrand Well, it would make more sense if it said the type of vote in the message though. It would be less confusing anyway. – lnafziger Jan 15 '14 at 2:44
  • Meh, I think if you clicked on a comment up vote icon, and you got that message, it shouldn't be all that confusing that it's about comment votes. shrug – Aaron Bertrand Jan 15 '14 at 3:00

Comment votes and post votes are two separate things.

You can use up all of your comment votes and still have post votes left. Same vice-versa.

In your case, you hit the post vote limit, but you still had comment votes left over. Then you upvoted comments, and had no comment votes left.

    I think he realizes that. The confusion seems to stem from the fact that the message doesn't indicate what kind of votes he had hit the limit on. – Grant Jan 15 '14 at 3:12

    @GrantWinney Then it's an exact dupe of the one I posted the possible dupe of on the main post. – hichris123 Jan 15 '14 at 3:13
  • @hichris123 and it is. – user1306322 Jan 15 '14 at 3:56
