Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Vote too old to be changed, unless post is edited “problem”

By mistake I downvoted good answer that was upvoted by me earlier. Now I cannot upvote it again because the answer is too old. I asked answer author to edit his answer and then was able to upvote it again.

Is there other way to repair such mistake?

I think SO should allow me to change my decision within some time, but maybe I omitted something.

Hi. Questions about stackoverflow belong at meta.stackoverflow.com. – Tinister Oct 23 '09 at 10:51
    
I've seen this problem too. This should be moved to meta and hopefully the SO development team will do something with it. – sharptooth Oct 23 '09 at 10:52
    

It's designed to prevent people gaming the system - particularly downvoting other answers on questions they've upvoted. See this related question.
