I am talking about following question

Fill SVG only if existing fill colour is certain value

I am quite sure that the OP had accepted my answer (you can see his comment underneath my answer) but after sometime the accepted answer has been changed and now Robert Longson's answer has been accepted.

Now I want to know who has changed this and should not I get a notification with a reason?

Can I get a question specific summary?

Maybe by "question specific summary" you mean this? –  bfavaretto Sep 3 '13 at 19:03
    
@bfavaretto Woah, is there a way to easily see a timeline like this for any question? Or do you have to edit the URL every time? –  p.s.w.g Sep 3 '13 at 19:49
    
@p.s.w.g There's no link that I know of, you have to edit the URL. –  bfavaretto Sep 3 '13 at 19:52
    
@p.s.w.g - It's an expensive query, and that level of detail is not generally necessary, so it's a "hidden" feature. –  JDB Sep 3 '13 at 20:22
    
@p.s.w.g it was suggested and declined to add such link, just edit the URL manually by changing "/questions" to "/posts" and adding "/timeline" after the ID. –  Shadow Wizard Sep 3 '13 at 23:02
    
@bfavaretto this(stackoverflow.com/posts/18590985/timeline) is exactly what i want and now i think i know how to get it –  Dhaval Sep 4 '13 at 7:22

The question asker can change the accepted answer to their question at their own discretion, or even unaccept an answer without reaccepting. You already get a "notification" by way of losing the 15 rep you were previously awarded with the acceptance, but the asker isn't obliged to tell you their reason for accepting another answer over yours.

No idea what you mean by "question specific summary".

it is not about reputation it is just you should get atleast a notification –  Dhaval Sep 3 '13 at 18:43

@Dhaval: You don't get a notification when your answer is accepted, so why should you get a notification when your answer is unaccepted? –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 3 '13 at 18:44

Unaccepts already appear in your reputation history. –  Bart Sep 3 '13 at 18:44
    
@Dhaval - Why? Of what use would that information be to you? –  JDB Sep 3 '13 at 20:21

@Dhaval - Notifications on accepted answers would be a horrible idea. Imagine how full Jon Skeets inbox would be :O –  Josh Mein Sep 3 '13 at 20:44
    
@JoshMein i got your idea and you are right .. i thought at my level but in broad you are right ... –  Dhaval Sep 4 '13 at 7:19
