Darn it, I gave mine to posts instead of comments as well. Tomorrow's another day, though!

Welcome :)

I ended up making the same mistake.

Fuck, I didn't realise this either. Seems like a pretty good system though.

A lot of people seem to be confused or frustrated with the system now because it's so different from Reddit's. I love it though.

Welcome to Voat!

Thanks!

Yep, I was confused at first, but not frustrated; the differences make it more interesting to me.

Though it's not an ideal system for welcoming thousands of new users.

Ooh, that's neat!

I learned a thing about not being able to downvoat until you get 100 comment points. But handing out upvoats is basically free. Well, like you say, you're limited by day until you hit 20 comment points.

Come to think of it, regularly eyeing my comment points to see how I'm allowed to voat on this site would be "checking my privilege". :-D

Also, yay, servers! Hi, other voaters!

That's actually true. I checked my privilege dozens of times today.

Oh my goodness! I got a dynamic, live notification about this reply! Like, a little (1) in my tab bar like on facebook!

Either I don't comment enough on reddit, I don't get enough replies, or they don't have this feature.

My motivation to participate more here just went way up.

Welcome! As you receive more upvotes for comments, your CCP will increase, so it shouldn't take too long.

It's okay, I've been here a while and I still don't get how it works. sometimes. There was a recent update along the lines of after a hundred CCP (comment contribution points) you get your total CCP divided by half, or something like that. I urge new users to be more sparing with votes, both up and down. Some subs have a minimum in order to be able to downvoat, and it is better to explain why you disagree with some one. And it's good advice to ignore trolls.

Aside from that, welcome! hope you enjoy your stay. what are your interests?

Sounds good. Reddit has too much "downvoting to disagree".

Aside from that, welcome! hope you enjoy your stay. what are your interests?

Thanks :)

Interests include computers, robotics, math and science, astronomy and NASA, gaming, sci-fi and fantasy, travel, languages, history, politics, economics, and enough fitness to stay healthy, in particular hiking, jogging, cycling, and (basic) body weight fitness.
