I up-voted an answer from 0 to 1, but then thought better of it and tried the down button to undo it. But when I did, the score went from 1 to -1, which is not at all what I wanted.

Couldn't each member's contribution to the score change on the fly between -1, 0, and +1 by rolling up or down between them, recalculating its effect each time?


If you want to undo your upvote then click on the up arrow to remove your vote. Clicking on the down arrow will remove your upvote then add a downvote.

  • Good to know, thanks. However, that seems really unintuitive to me. I assumed clicking up twice would be an attempt to add +2. – Jason Melançon May 24 '15 at 1:06

    @JasonMelançon The tooltip on the arrows themselves say "click again to undo" – curiousdannii May 24 '15 at 1:10

    @JasonMelançon As you cannot vote up twice, it's reasonable for a repeat action to do something else. Think of it as a push-switch which you push to turn on and have to push again to turn off. – Andrew Leach May 24 '15 at 7:39
  • @AndrewLeach Yeah, I get that. It's not unreasonable, just unintuitive. You're clicking up to go down. – Jason Melançon May 24 '15 at 12:45
