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

Just curious:

I answered a question and the user seems to like the answer, but hasn't accepted it. I checked his profile, and it shows "Unregistered User".

I wonder if the user can't accept the answer because they aren't registered.

Yes, they can.

I deleted Koper's answer because it was 100% incorrect.

Hi Jeff, I accidentally asked a question as an unregistered user on Stack Overflow even though I have a registered account. How do I accept the answer for the question? If I go to the question without logging in to my registered account I don't seem to have the option of accepting an answer and if I go to the question logged in with my registered account I can't accept the answer because I asked it as an unregistered user and not with my registered account. – Paul Caheny Nov 24 '10 at 18:09
@czarak you need to have the accounts merged, email the address at the bottom of every page with URLs to both accounts – Jeff Atwood Nov 24 '10 at 21:17
