Today, I accidentally clicked down vote on a post when I actually wanted to upvote it.

 

Should users be able to change their minds? If I up/downvote a post, shouldn't I be able to change that (even if only within a time frame and even if it cost your own rep)

Shame on you.

 

I know. I am filled with remorse.

Just happened to me as well while scrolling on a touchscreen. There really should be a way to undo votes.

I can't believe you did this.

 

Seriously, yeah, +1 for a way to undo votes, maybe just clicking again on the circle should remove your vote and let you vote again?


The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.

Something like that. Or just leave the arrows visible and make it possible to click downvote again to undownvote (or click upvote to undownvote and upvote at the same time). In general something more like the stackexchange way of doing things would be nice.

+1, I've done this a handful of times while browsing on my phone.
