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

Recently, I noticed something like this in my reputation tab:

+15/-15 14:10 2 events What does IN mean in Windows device driver functions?
+15 14:10 accept
-15 14:10 unaccept

So I thought, my answer was accepted and again unaccepted. But again, when I visited the Question, I saw, its still accepted.

If it is not unaccepted, why is the -ve reputation, and if it is unaccepted, why tha answer itself showing as accepted?

OP unaccepts your answer (-15). Then reaccepts it (+15). Net result: no change – Mysticial Mar 27 '13 at 6:09

The answer was probably unaccepted then (re)accepted. You've got the timeline of events backwards.

To check this, look at the timestamps by hovering over "14:10". The unaccept occurred at 14:10:28, whereas the accept occurred 9 seconds later, at 14:10:37.
