What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

The biggest peeve is sometimes I vote up an answer mid-way through reading it, and the "don't forget to accept" message blocks the remaining text, so I scramble and triple-click it until it closes.

Anyways I frequently scan my question list and search for SO's reminders, ("Consider accepting an answer") so the "don't forget to accept" is wholly unnecessary to some, and there should be a way to disable it. Do you think so too?

It goes away after 1 month automatically. Just wait.

Excellent! Thanks so much. Very smart site. – Jarvis Aug 14 '09 at 23:16
A month after being posted? A month after the last comment/answer? A month without a view? – Randell Aug 27 '09 at 6:54
I have my Yearling badge, and still get this message every day. – Mike Howard May 14 '11 at 10:45
In a more recent question, Jeff has said it expires in 60 days. – wim Aug 30 '11 at 2:55

Doesn't bother me, really. I think it's an important feature to make sure people accept answers to questions that have been answered, and I don't particularly see a need for being able to disable it. If it becomes to easy to dismiss it might as well not exist, since no one would read it.
