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 been using this forum for 4 days and i found it's very usefull.

However, some people misunderstood me. They think that i don't like voting on them, because they gave me the right answer.

The question is: How do i vote on someone's answer and how do i accept someone's comment as the best answer? Whoever tells me in the next 20 minutes, he gets +1

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Meta-meta-question: What are we supposed to do with migrated questions like this one, where both the questioner and the answerer(s) are not registered here? Should we let them die in peace (the questions, not the users), or is there a point in trying to answer them? (Update: @AxGryndr is now registered here, I guess I should have kept my mouth shut.) – Frédéric Hamidi Apr 16 '13 at 21:43
@FrédéricHamidi In theory, the poster shouldn't matter, just the question. But yeah, kinda demotivating to be answering only for hypothetical future visitors. – blahdiblah Apr 16 '13 at 21:44
Seems kind of wrong to take that stance because you can't convince me that this is the first time this has happened. Maybe it should be made more clear in the FAQ that Stackoverflow forum support questions belong in the meta.stackoverflow forum and to do so you have to log into the site here. – AxGryndr Apr 16 '13 at 21:47
@FrédéricHamidi - I wouldn't be surprised if they register when they receive notification of the migration. One user has already done so. – Flexo Apr 16 '13 at 21:48
@AxGryndr, welcome to Meta. I could not help noticing you said forum twice in your last comment. This is known to ruffle feathers sometimes around here, so maybe I should point out Stack Exchange sites are not forums (or maybe fora?) – Frédéric Hamidi Apr 16 '13 at 21:51
The answer is here: – David Heffernan Apr 16 '13 at 22:01
I'm sensing another "help vampire" here. I just saw someone get banned for a) asking the same question again after previous one got closed, b) asking very entry level questions, and c) being very unclear in the details. Just like Frédéric Hamidi says, this is not a forum site. StackExchange sites have very strict rules, and everything you do highly depends on your reputation. – Jerry Dodge Apr 17 '13 at 0:15

Many functions of Stackoverflow are based on your reputation. In order to be able to up vote an item your reputation has to be 15 or higher. It is most likely at the time of your first questions you did not have enough rep.
