Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Automated testing against third party library that maintains a singleton state internally

Althought not a perfect solution, I tried accepting my post as answer. But I got a message saying that it couldn't be accepted until 2 days.

Are we assuming that everybody will notice that the answer was written by me (the OP) and thus instantly separating it from a rejected answer? I didn't know about the "2 day rule". Therefore, if I stumbled across this thread, I would be in danger of assuming that the problem was not solved.

In this particular case, however, I would like to hear from more people, so it doesn't really bother me.

It already does, as the user card has a different background color:

      User card background color

(A long time ago, the whole post used to have a blue background color, just like accepted answers used to be greenish. See also What do the colors on Stack Overflow mean?)

Oh, I didn't notice. Thanks. – Tormod Jan 8 '12 at 11:40
As you didn't notice, maybe your feature request still stands? – Arjan Jan 8 '12 at 11:41
You're correct; OP answers used to have a blue background a long time ago. – balpha Jan 8 '12 at 11:41
