Currently the votes are fixed after a particular time. One can't undo or upvote a post previously downvotted by him/her unless the post is edited.
So, say the question was edited by another person (misunderstand what the OP is asking) and the edit was rolled back by the OP, what happens to the alterations in votes during the time of edit?
- The edit was not by OP - So are we allowed to change votes when someone other than OP edits the question?
- The edit was rolled back - Will this undo the votes changed during the edited period (assuming there was a gap between the edit and the rollback)
Though I am not asserting anything, this can potentially cause a person to edit a question to remove his/her upvote or downvote. Especially if the person has sufficient reputation to directly edit the post
