I'm not certain whether something has changed but I don't remember running out of votes for comments in the past. At least, I certainly don't remember running out of them at all often. Then yesterday, I ran out of votes and was told I would have more in 1 hour. Today, I have run out and been told I cannot vote on comments again for 11 hours.
How many votes can I use for comments in what period of time? And how can I check how many votes I have left so as to conserve them for the most important uses when I am running low?
Right now, I'm tending to comment when I would have up-voted a comment but this results in unnecessarily cluttering the comments. I'd like to be able to watch the number of votes I have. In that case, if I'm running out of votes, I could reserve those remaining for cases where I don't otherwise want to comment myself, and refrain from up-voting when I am planning to comment anyway.
