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

The accept check marks are not visible on one of my unaccepted questions on SO: Custom HTTP Basic Authentication for ASP.NET Web Services on .NET 3.5/VS 2008

I am logged in and I see the check marks on other unaccepted questions. Is there a special rule for accepting questions that I am missing? alt text

  • (maybe obvious, but) are you logged in as the correct user? (I can only see one eed3si9n, so I don't think this is the problem, but sometimes people start with an unregistered account and then have a different registered account - which can be merged by moderators if needed)
  • Did you have an (unsuccessful) bounty or anything like that?

Update: I checked the logs; yes, you did:

eed3si9n -> Bounty creation of 100 rep on question id = 490627 Feb 4 at 5:33 () (-50 rep)

If you add a bounty, then the ability to select an answer is removed after the bounty ends. You didn't select a winner, and none had 2 votes so none was auto-selected. See also Questions where answers can not be accepted, should not count towards the accept rate
