I downvoted the answer by JustABitOfCode within the first few minutes because it was wrong. He made an edit inside the 5 minute window which corrected the mistake he had in his answer. However, I cannot change my downvote to an upvote because the system says the question had to been edited - which it was. I know the 5 minute window was established long time ago for that 5 minute oops period. Is there a way that we can still alter our upvotes somehow but keep the system the same. Meaning, allowing the 5 minute edit grace period and not showing the answer as edited but allowing others to alter their votes if it was edited at all?

Related, but though [status-completed] not a solution I guess: Why can't I change my vote if the post has been edited during the initial 5mn grace period? And kind of also related: Add an indication that a post has been edited in the 5 minutes grace period which maybe could be based on the same thing. –  Arjan Apr 13 '11 at 13:18
