I had a question, which is below. Then I found an answer from 2009.
As IT people we are naturally suspicious of anything we read that is more than 18 months old. Right? Four years old is like, well, guaranteed to be wrong, no?
So, should one re-ask a question that was answered four years ago?
The question I wanted to ask was:
I just answered my own question in SO and accepted it as the answer. But when I view my question my answer appears after the other answers which received up votes.
My question is do self answered/accepted answers not automatically rise to the top of the answer list regardless of number of upvotes as is the case with answers by other users?
In other words, if I accept a zero-vote answer from someone it goes right to the top even if there is an answer with 300 up-votes. Does the same not happen if the person creating the answer is the person who wrote the question?
