I am trying to vote http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2741548/stopping-pirates/2741595#2741595 , which has no vote of mine on it, and I constantly get "Vote too old to be changed..."

This is by design, but..

Based on all the "vote too old" feedback, I modified the text to make the timed vote locking a bit more clear:

You last voted on this question

Mar 28 at 7:55

Your vote is now locked in

unless this question is edited

Where "question" and "answer" are substitutions.

tnx - much clearer now and will save some band width on Meta... – Itay Moav -Malimovka May 12 '10 at 22:49

Did you vote on it and take it back?

That counts as a "vote that cannot be changed"

Ah, thats good to know. I hadn't realized that voting and then un-voting still counted. – IAbstract Apr 30 '10 at 12:31
That's just plain stupid! – Motti Nov 10 '10 at 10:21
