On Physics Stack Exchange I have 96 reputation points. I'm able to upvote something, but when I tried downvoting a question it said that my vote would be recorded, but not displayed.

Is there a different amount of reputation points needed to downvote than to upvote?

Each SE community has its own requirements for upvotes and downvotes. On Physics Stack Exchange, the minimum rep to downvote is 125.

For future reference, check your site's privileges page to see how many reputation points are required for any specific type of action.

  • Sure, I just did it. I think I had been a member for a day or two when I asked, so I must have not known about it :) Apr 15, 2017 at 0:26
