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

Does this site have a bug like you ask a question, then answer it yourself and mark your answer as the best one and get 15 points for free?

In the context of meta it seems incorrect that this question should have been down voted. However, the brazen attempt to test the theory below is more deserving of the down vote. :o) – Tom Duckering Jan 6 '10 at 11:22

You can't accept your own answer right away - you have to wait for a couple of days.

If you do accept your own answer, you don't get the 15 point bonus.

Of course, you could use two accounts to cheat - but expect people to spot this pretty quickly.

Likely it really has. But there are doubts.
