I was browsing around photo se, reading and voting some quality answers and suddenly got greeted by this:

Come back to vote on more answers in 10 hours, or use your 10 remaining question votes now

Previously I've had warnings when I reach the total daily vote limit, but this came out of nowhere.

I still do get a warning when I have 5 (or less) question votes left. Should there be a similar notification for answer votes?

A side question: is this a new feature? Didn't see any mention in the vote limits FAQ post.

    It is a new feature, I coded it and deployed it today – waffles May 3 '11 at 14:37

    @waffles oh, it's that new. I would probably had given it more time if I knew that. – Jari Keinänen May 3 '11 at 15:34
  • and most important of all, thank you for exhausting your votes :) – Daniel DiPaolo May 3 '11 at 16:10

Sure, the warnings are now back and work as they always did.

also see: Please don't require answer votes to be cast before question votes

    Good points in the other question. Seeing the overall process (at any time) sounds more reasonable than having a "Hold your horses! 5 answer votes left!" notification popping up; which would, though, be more worry-free than the current "Too bad you didn't count how many votes you've used, they're all gone now! See you in 10 hours (or maybe vote some questions)." – Jari Keinänen May 3 '11 at 15:47
