Undo a up/down vote after a comment is left
Should votes be unlocked after comments, not just edits?

I got this:

You last voted on this answer Feb 8 '11 at 16:40 Your vote is now locked in unless this answer is edited (click on this box to dismiss)

So this was shown to me on stackoverflow. I tried to remove an upvote to an already downvoted answer, I did not see that that the answer was really flawed. Another commenter saw this and responded. I wanted to take of my +1 (the tally was -1) so it would be a -2 which would mean more to visitors in my opinion.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that a comment from somebody else other than the author (who clearly didn't take the downvotes as a hint) might influence my opinion.

This question is slightly different because the assumption is that your comment is picked up by the editor of the question. Should votes be unlocked after comments, not just edits?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
So... are you asking to include the unlocking for votes also after comments or not? I don't see a feature-request tag so maybe it's not the case... –  Alenanno Mar 26 '12 at 19:17
    
upvote the comment... –  ben is uǝq backwards Mar 26 '12 at 19:17
    
There should be no vote locking at all. –  endolith May 9 '12 at 20:04

If you change your mind about your vote on a post because it was clarified in a comment, edit the post to take the clarification into account, and then change your vote.

This doesn't work if you don't have 2k rep. –  Tyrsius Jun 25 '12 at 22:19
