I was just able to vote my own Article (Basic Login functionalities for ASP.Net 4.0)[^] and even got Rep points for it and the vote count was updated. I don't know if this is a known bug but IMO the author of an article shouldn't be able to vote for his own article....
Should be a job for a spare hamster if there is one.
It is known and it has been allowed since I can recall. But only once. If you vote more, maybe the event log reflects the entry, but your rep should not be affected.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.

Accoring to CP
Those who have spent their time answering questions in the forums and writing great articles. MVP status is awarded annually based on ones contributions, and the feedback of the other members. Members of this group get an MVP icon next to their names in the forums and in their profile.
that means you are not awarded MVP yet. so no MVP status. please keep in mind that having more rep points doesn't earn you MVP status.
MVP is awarded early, when CP thinks your contribution to this site for the year is satisfactory they will award you an MVP for that year. Also your cumulative rep points doesnt earn MVP status either.
so keep contribute this year you may have a chance to receive an e-mail on Jan 2014.
The MVP status is awarded for outstanding contributions to CP. In other words, it's awarded to the people who help others the most. In the past, people cheated to get awards by doing things like creating other accounts to vote for themselves. This doesn't work because CP has sophisticated systems in place to work this out when the MVP is awarded.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
Sean and a jar of grease is not what I'd call 'sophisticated'.

Threatening to send Mr. Mankini around to have a chat in person with anyone whose profile looks like it was cheated up in manual review isn't what I'd consider sophisticated. Effective perhaps, but seriously declasse.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
