I can't up-vote, I have 15 reputation, the requirement. Can anyone tell me why I can't up-vote? I have tried on up-voting a Terraria question, is that my problem? Also this was my first up-vote attempt.

  • Sorry, I had 15.

  • You now have 25 ... Can you upvote now? Sometimes it takes some time for these point values to propagate. May 11, 2021 at 20:00
  • nope, here is the message i get: You need 15 reputation to upvote posts. Join Arqade Meta to start earning reputation and unlocking new privileges like voting and commenting.

Quickly glancing at your profile on StackExchange shows you have 11 reputation, not 15. If you had 15 rep at one point you may have needed to wait a day for the StackExchange server to register the change and lift the restriction. enter image description here

  • Thanks, i had 15 before but my question got downvoted and then migrated here.
