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

Possible Duplicates:
I was able to downvote an answer, and then unable to change it immediately after.
Isn’t the “vote too old to be changed” a little too eager?

I read an answer and started to downvote. I took it back 10 seconds later. 5 minutes later I decided it really did deserve a downvote, but then I was unable to do so. I get the message "Vote too old to be changed, unless the answer is changed".

Why am I unable to downvote?

Happens to me too all the time. Unintuitive in its current form. – Andomar Oct 28 '09 at 19:52
