What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

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. –  jmfsg Oct 5 '10 at 19:04
