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 got down-voters remorse, as I don't think I was being fair. But now its too late for me to reverse it. Any ideas please?

In addition to @random's answer, you could also leave a comment asking the author to do a minor edit, so you can undo your vote.

  • Bookmark the answer in your browser of choice. (Leave a note to yourself as to why you'll be coming back to the post.)
  • Continue using the site until you have at least 2000 juicy rep points.
  • Go back to the answer and edit it. This will reset the counter for votes.
  • Reverse your downvote to an upvote or just take back the vote.

Or just wait for them to edit their post and undo or reverse your vote then.

Great, so the whole shortening of the vote lock-in time was pretty much useless to avoid vote fraud as along as you have enough privileges. – tvanfosson Oct 4 '09 at 13:25
If you edit the question/answer simply to change your vote, everyone can see it. So it's not totally useless. – Matthew Scharley Oct 4 '09 at 14:03
