I want an undo button on CM

I accidentally voted someone down and I noticed we do not have an oops button to undo it. Has this ever happened to you?

  • Yes it happened to me once. It was the only time I have used it. It would be nice if there was a pop up that asked if you are sure.

    But it doesn't do anything to the person unless they have a neg 6 rating on their answer...... then it just hides it.

  • Happens a lot if you're using a phone - slide the screen up or down and you don't even see the vote button you're hitting because it hadn't fully loaded yet. I've had votes down I didn't want to vote down, and worse, vote ups to people I absolutely did not agree with and did not want my name in any way attached to supporting their opinion.

    And Charis - dv's do take points away if the poster is anon, 2 or 3 per dv iirc.

  • Yes, I've done this. I usually post an apology on the thread. I usually do it when I'm on my phone reading CM mom, but it's happened on my laptop as well.

  • Yes, I have accidentally voted down instead of up and vice versa, but only because I use my phone (touch screen) to get on CM 98% of the time. I think an undo button would be wonderful!

  • Done it once and wished for the same undo button. I think it would be good to add an undo button.
