Can we have the ability to rescind a close vote before it closes?

I have flagged many non-constructive posts and attempted to close them. But later, someone edits the question and makes it full-fledged. At this situation how do I withdraw my close-votes?

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.

You petition the SE High Commission to withdraw your close vote. It's a long and brutal bureaucratic process and by the end of it, you'd wish you had never wanted to withdraw. – Lorem Ipsum Jun 1 '12 at 17:01

You can't. See: Can we have the ability to rescind a close vote before it closes?.

Since the post is fixed now, it shouldn't keep accumulating close votes. If it does wind up getting closed, you can always flag to reopen.

You can't. In such cases it's best to comment that "I revoke my CV/flag blah blah"

It's no biggie anyway--if the question is closed by your vote, you can reopen. That's what closing is for.

If the question is closed by a trigger-happy fellow on seeing your CV, then still you can reopen.

For flags, its still no biggie. Your flag weight reduced a bit(if the mod didn't see your comment). No big deal.

"flag weight reduced a bit" Not anymore! – Daniel Jun 1 '12 at 17:12
@dan not really. It's no longer visible, but it's still used internally to prioritize the queue – Manishearth Jun 1 '12 at 17:18
@Danielδ: It just doesn't get displayed anymore, but it's still there. Also note that it continues to service one of its primary purposes, which is ordering the flags in the moderation queue. – Dennis Jun 1 '12 at 17:18
