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'm pretty sure I just observed the following bug. I up voted a question, it was then edited soon after, I waited a few minutes and decided to undo my upvote, but it refuses saying that my upvote was more than five minutes ago (which is true) and I must now wait until the question is edited before I would be allowed to undo the up vote (which is false since I'm pretty sure it was edited after I upvoted).

It seems to be a boundary condition not handled by the code, detecting an edit before five minutes have elapsed.

Edits by the same user before the first 5 minutes of posting are not counted as edits.

So this is by-design

So perhaps it should keep you from voting until 5 minutes have elapsed? – WilliamKF Oct 5 '10 at 19:02
I don't know @Wil, the spirit is that that edit never actually happened -- it's a grace period for you to fix spelling mistakes and the like, not to change the meaning of the post. – juan Oct 5 '10 at 19:04
