I just accidentally upvoted a comment while browsing SE using the Android app, and wanted to remove that upvote once I had realized my mistake.

However, there is no option to remove the upvote, while it seems I still get the choice to upvote a comment although I already did that.

I chose upvote again, hoping this would effectively remove my upvote, but in fact it did nothing.

  • I'd totally accept that, and I don't consider that a bug, rather a feature request with not-so-high priority. However, if there is a possibility to upvote a comment, there should be one to remove the upvote as well, IMHO. – FD_ Feb 18 '14 at 17:37
  • Not saying this shouldn't be implemented, but comments are second class citizens. Compared to app crashes and other requested features, this will probably rank low. – Steven V Feb 18 '14 at 22:11

While this seems like a "not at all important" feature, it is entirely too easy for me and my massive fingers to accidentally upvote a comment when I mean to hit "profile". And I am more likely to look at a commenter's profile when it's a poor comment and I'm thinking about flagging it. In fact, since upvote is in the middle, I'll bet I hit when I mean to hit flag, too.

I can also see myself thinking I'm upvoting the good comment but actually upvoting the one under it.

It would be nice if either I couldn't upvote comments at all, or could undo that upvote.
