I realized the other day on SciFi & Fantasy SE that the upvote message is misleading. I had joined and asked a question, this one if you were wondering, and tried to upvote an answer.
It gave me a message saying that my upvotes would not be shown until I had 15 rep.
Okay, I understand that. Same with downvotes. It makes sense not to allow voting privileges immediately.
But when I had ≥15 rep and could now upvote, I realized it didn't actually upvote the answer. I understand that too, but I don't think it should tell me it was hidden when it didn't exist.
I propose we change the <15 rep upvote message to something less misleading.
You need ≥15 rep to upvote answers/question/comments
Just something less misleading.
I understand that the attempted vote is tracked, I wish to change the message to say that.
Note: I am asking to change that tooltip, not questioning what it does.
