When I upvote an answer, a message shows up saying "You haven't voted […]." It just fades out so fast that I am unable to get the full message.

What's that message? Why does it fade so fast?

  • This is a duplicate, I just can't find the question! I can tell you though that they added the popup to encourage voting on questions.

  • Could it be that you did not vote any questions? Isn't that one of the changes to try to improve the questions voting?

You haven't voted on questions in a while;
questions need votes too!

Look at the blog entry : Vote For This Question or The Kitten Gets It for more information.

  • Aaahh! That blog post cleared the confusion. Thanks.
