Today, I used all forty of my allotted votes and then found that the First Posts and Late Answers queues were closed to me for the rest of the day. Why these two and not the other four?
- Running out of up/down votes locks you out of First Posts and Late Answers queues
- Running out of close votes locks you out of Close queue
- Running out of reopen votes locks you out of Reopen queue (I think; this never actually happened to me, unlike the situation with the Close queue).
The logic is the same in each case: if a user is unable to perform some of the primary functions of the queue, they are asked to defer to another user who can.
First Posts and Late Answers invite voting up or down. All other queues disable voting up or down; they invite other actions.
