I noticed a particular issue today:

upvote attempt

From this screeshot you can tell that I could not upvote this question because I reached the daily vote limit.

However, by checking the vox populi badge:

I am 2 votes away from the daily limit... I remember I have reached the daily vote limit at least one other time before, so this is not a new bug for me/my account.

I wonder what happened with the counting...

Normally you can only vote thirty times but you gain up to ten extra votes by voting on questions rather than answers.

From MSE:

  1. Everyone gets a total of 30 votes.
  2. You may get up to 10 extra question votes.
  3. Warnings remain simple... (5 votes remaining, 4 votes remaining...)
  4. Question votes may be cast at any time during the day. However, once you reach the N votes remaining warnings, stuff is set in stone. A question voting spree at the end will still count down.
  • Oh... I probably voted in more answers than questions then... Thanks! I'll focus on questions tomorrow and report.
