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 posted a question on Server Fault, and looked at my profile to realise that I only had a 75% accept rate. So I went through looking for which question/s had missed out.

It turned out it was this one:

Since the only answer was unhelpful, I went to downvote it. There was no indication that I'd placed a vote previously (no up or down arrow overlaying the vote counts) - yet when I clicked the "down" arrow, I received a message saying "You last voted on this in April, you can't change your vote unless it is edited." But I haven't voted, as far as I can see!

You voted at a earlier time and then canceled your vote. The system still retains the record of your vote.

isn't it un-wanted behavior? – Hoàng Long Feb 18 '11 at 17:55
