I made a review on TeX.SX today concerning a Late answer and I have to admit, that I accidentally hit the "Nothing Action needed** although I wanted to edit and comment the post, because it was a new question instead of an answer.

Is there a way to revoke this Approving and remove it from my review count? I do not think that the steps (if possible at all) are TeX.SX specific.

  • No, such thing is not possible. Just learn the lesson and move on, mistakes happen. :) Jun 18, 2014 at 11:55
  • In case you meant this to be a feature request, it's dupe of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/186590/… Jun 18, 2014 at 11:56
  • @ShadowWizard: Well, I have some experience with reviewing, but it annoys me anyway.. ;-)

  • You can still go back and edit the post though. And you can follow the link and add a comment. Those this won't count toward the review process, it's more to the spirit of what that review queue is there for anyway.

No, you cannot retract a review vote after the fact.

I would not worry too much about it, mistakes happen but there are other reviewers that'll pick up the post. You can still go back to the post itself and comment and edit there.

  • Well, I have to learn from it ;-)
