I've just found a strange feature on Stack Overflow. When I am upvoting or downvoting anyone's answer, I cannot undo my upvote or downvote until the answer is edited (after the initial 5 mins).
I am aware of the fact that the feature is that we can undo the upvote or downvote only if the question or answer is edited.
But I have found that if I click on Edit button and don't change anything in the question or answer, and I try to undo my votes, then I am allowed to do so.
Steps that I followed:-
- I upvoted the question.
- Then after 28 minutes I opened the question again.
- Clicked on Edit.
- And just after that I reversed my upvote.
- then click the cancel button. And I was allowed to do so
Is this the usual behavior or I am missing some FAQ part?
