Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I accidentally voted a question down. I thought voting up once would help my accidental move look like never happened but instead it voted up the question. I, again, thought voting down would settle the things, but surprise surprise :) question was voted down. So did I miss anything or is there a way to undo a voteup or a votedown?

While the vote is not locked in, click again on what your vote was. (Hover over the arrows, the tooltip says "Click again to undo." at the end.) – Daniel Fischer Mar 6 '13 at 21:23
Thank you, shame on me that i missed that:) – Varaquilex Mar 6 '13 at 21:24
up vote 5 down vote accepted

If you are within the 5 minute grace period, just click on the votedown button again to undo.

If the grace period has passed, either wait for the question to be edited, or edit it yourself to undo the downvote.

Editing the answer/question yourself is a terrible thing to do - it bumps it to the top of the questions list for no point whatsoever. – Richard J. Ross III Mar 6 '13 at 22:04
I always thought the grace period was 5 minutes. – Andrew Barber Mar 6 '13 at 22:50
@AndrewBarber: And so it is. Thank you for clarifying. – nneonneo Mar 7 '13 at 23:32
