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

Can someone with lots of Stack Overflow rep go make a trivial edit to the accepted answer to this question so I can vote it up?

WPF Animation - Why Can't "By" have a negitive value?

If you are curious, you can see why I cannot vote it up now in this question:

Can't upvote an answer (says the vote is too old)

This has happened again (and probably will many times) with the above question. If someone with lots of Stack Overflow rep is feeling benevolent I would appreciate the help (as would the answerer I am sure).

You should be more careful when voting. – ChrisF Dec 29 '09 at 17:31
Ask the post owner to edit his post. Much easier than messing up Meta. – Ladybug Killer Dec 29 '09 at 17:50
what happens if you unaccept his post, upvote it, then re-accept? – Brian Dec 29 '09 at 18:14
@Roboto: It still blocks me. – Vaccano Dec 29 '09 at 20:09

Just as a reminder, you accepted his answer and that did give him 15 rep points.

If you did exactly what the meta questions you linked to, unfortunantly that is by design and not currently considered a bug by Jeff and his team. The vote restriction timer is started whenever you vote and continues even if you undo a vote. I know, it is annoying.

I know. But I wanted to up vote the answer too. – Vaccano Dec 29 '09 at 17:23
