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

This is a question about how Meta works, and it does not directly pertain to the other SO sites.

In the [feature-request] tag here on Meta, for questions which make some sort of request, what answers should we "accept"? It is not clear per the current analogy of accepting answers.

Should we accept ones where a person from the Stack Overflow team answers, as this is changing the status of the feature-request? However, not all feature-requests are touched by the team. Or, should we just accept the ones we (and the community) feels would be the best approach towards this request?

A meta-meta site would be interesting. But then someone would want to see a meta-meta-meta site. – Leo King May 20 '14 at 17:58

For a feature request, if Jeff responds with an answer then I accept his answer after the feature is done (or at least after I think it's done!). Otherwise, I treat it as discussion and don't bother.

This is meta, the usual accept game doesn't apply here.
