Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I have an answer on Stack Overflow that currently is marked as accepted. However, when you look at my rep totals for that post, you see exactly one accept and exactly one unaccept.

One Accept and one Unaccept

It would seem that it is missing one accept, as I can't think of any other reason for it to be in this state. What could have caused this inconsistency?

You're looking at the events that occurred today. The original accept was probably some time in the distant past. – Cody Gray Mar 5 '12 at 18:30
Yep, that's what happened. – Mark Thomas Mar 5 '12 at 18:31

That question's timeline shows that your answer was first accepted on February 16th, before being unaccepted and reaccepted today. The information you're seeing is correct, and if you browse back to the details for February 16th you should see the initial accept there.
