What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Recently there was a new feature introduced in the SE sites where your upvotes/downvotes are locked after few minutes. you will not be able to upvote/downvote the same question or answer after that specified time unless the user edits his question or answer.

However, there are cases when I just downvote and then cancel my downvote immediately and leave the decision for future. Sometime later I visit the same question or answer and try to upvote but I am not allowed to do so since my voting is locked for that particular question or answer.

My question is, should the locking should happen only if I have upvoted or downvoted and not when I cancel my votes? Or should it be the way it is now?
