Can we have an option to disable the “don't forget to accept” reminder?

Or whatever stackover says now if you asked a question and give an answer an up vote. Really? I guess I am all for tutorials, and I have been away from the stack for a few months, but can I toggle off helpful suggestions? Are they new? Are they necessary? Thanks.

p.s. just saw math.stackoverflow and that is so AWESOME!! How long has that been out?! I gotta check it out right now... thanks for all your hard work (where else will yoda answer your matlab question, clearly killing it)!

a down vote isn't an answer to my question –  Jimmy Oct 15 '11 at 4:49
    
but the accepted answer to that question says the reminders go away after a month, and I have been here way longer than a month... bug report? –  Jimmy Oct 15 '11 at 4:54
    
okay, but the answer to the duplicate does not seem to be correct –  Jimmy Oct 15 '11 at 5:37

1 Answer 1

Some users, and some of the smaller sites, have low rates of "accepting an answer". Things that increase voting and accepting answers are important.

I guess it would be nice to be able to turn the notices off.

I guess I answer at about 85% right now... what do you think the cutoff should be? –  Jimmy Oct 15 '11 at 4:52
