I have a website for a client, where users can vote up or down certain things on a leaderboard. The up vote is stored within wp_postmeta as a field.

What I'd like to be able to do is see what the league table looked like at a certain date & time, but as far as I can see there is no date/time stamp within that table to show when it was last updated. Am I missing something, or is there no way of telling when that field was amended?

You are right the wp_postmeta table:

does not save any kind of time stamp. Unlike for example the wp_posts table with post_date, post_modified and such. So you have to implement a mechanism to keep track of the points in time when votes happened yourself.
