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

@takpar - if you try to accept your own answer before the 48 hours are up you should get a pop up telling you that you have to wait. – ChrisF Apr 11 '10 at 21:25
@takpar - I hate this waiting period.… – ripper234 Apr 11 '10 at 21:25
Too bad takpar didn't figure this out, then mark his own answer as accepted. – Onion-Knight Apr 12 '10 at 19:24
