About

Many posts over the years have asked for ways to systematically ensure up- and down-votes are as up-to-date as the posts they were cast on, whether by notifying as soon as a post was edited, or by listing posts that now qualify for retracting votes. This script was inspired by this suggestion in particular for the latter. It adds a dynamic tab to the Votes tab on your profile, showing only votes on posts that have been changed since you voted. (The date shown is the date you voted, not the date of the last revision.)

Screenshots

Once you go to the votes tab on your profile, you'll see this:
"edited since voting" link added at end of filter subtabs

Click it, as shown, and after the progress indicator thrashes for a while you'll see a count of qualifying votes to the left:

Below will be assorted votes in the same tabular format as normal votes (though without inline post bodies):
an up- and a down-vote

Refresh or retract your votes by opening the linked posts, of course.

Install

Install Show Edited Votes. (Installing from the link will get you secure updates with at least Greasemonkey.)

  • Votes are roughly sorted first by type (up, down) and then by date.

    Along the same line of thought, I've always wished there was a lock icon next to each vote, which would disappear if the post was edited and my vote can now change. – Tot Zam Feb 8 '17 at 5:06
  • I have mentioned this script on Stack Overflow Meta. – Makyen Mar 30 '17 at 15:01
  • @Makyen: Thanks for the mention! I've sifted through the docs and managed to get an API key now. – Nathan Tuggy Mar 30 '17 at 20:05
  • I just re-noticed: It would be helpful to also include the year in the dates which are along the left side of the listing. Hmm.. Now that I look closer, it is unclear what is being displayed: the last edit date or the date I voted. In addition, the sorting appears off. I have some where the tooltip is showing years sorted out of order (example 1, 2). What would probably be best is to have 2 columns of dates (sortable, ideally). one column being the date the user voted and the other being the date the post was edited. – Makyen Mar 30 '17 at 20:41
  • BTW: It would be helpful if you would provide licensing information (if any). The parent page indicates that the scripts shown on that page are under the GPL. However, that does not actually include this script, or anything else in this directory, which is not explicitly linked from that parent page. FYI: If this was up on GitHub (with a stated license), I probably would have just forked it, investigated the sorting issue, then probably fix it and submitted a pull request. – Makyen Mar 30 '17 at 21:03
