Possible Duplicate:
Can we have the ability to rescind a close vote before it closes?

This is similar to this question, but not the same. The other question is more along the lines of someone else being able to provide a "vote not to close" to counter a "vote to close". My question is about being able to cancel your own vote to close.

There have been a few occassions where I voted to close a question for some reason (other than it should be migrated) and then the question has been reworded (either by the original questioner or someone else, which should be irrelevant) resulting in a question that negates the reason specified to close the question. At that point, it would be nice if I could then cancel my own vote to close.

    (FWIW, i agree - this is badly needed, and has been requested several times dating back to the UserVoice days... Sadly, the SO Team appears to have been burned by undo and is backing off their initial enthusiasm for it: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/18370/… )

    Now I'm in the dilemma... should I undo the "close exact duplicate"? Commented Aug 29, 2009 at 22:27
  • @Shog9: I think there are other ways to solve the problems removing undo capabilities and limiting the time allowed to do them were meant to solve. Commented Aug 29, 2009 at 22:30
  • @Marc Gravell: I didn't see the question you and Shog9 referenced as the duplicate and after reading it, they are duplicates although I like mine better. :) Anyway, I don't think there is a need to undo the "close as duplicate". Commented Aug 29, 2009 at 22:33
  • @Scott: I think so too. But suggestions regarding closing seem to get highjacked by the "don't close anything" crowd.

    @Marc: do that, and i'll reply "LOL" - then we'll both get flagged.
