[I've seen this and it's not the same]

Sometimes, when visiting a question that i voted on a long time ago, it lets me remove my vote while the page is loading but then locks the vote down so i can't fix it. Can this be fixed?

  • What's your example post as well as timeline to you voting and if it actually had an edit when re-voting.

It's probably because the post was edited since you cast your original vote.

If the post has been edited, it is eligible for re-voting by anyone who previously voted on it.

  • What i mean is the page is loading and for whatever reason i unclick the vote then immediately (within 2 seconds) reclick the vote, but it only accepts the first one.

  • Sounds like the revote-after-edit problem to me. Dec 4, 2009 at 14:49
