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

What should I do if I feel my answer is correct and I am the only who has answered but it is not accepted?

Any suggestions?

Nothing. There is no requirement to accept any answers on the sites.

Which is a rather stupid notion as the questions don't get closed. I'm often (re) reading questions that are left open and take away my valuable time. There should be some community method about forcing an answer to get accepted, especially for drive by users. – Maarten Bodewes Apr 17 '14 at 15:15

Can you link to the question? If it's a new user who may or may not have come back to the site, there may be nothing you can do. If it's a regular user you can leave a comment asking if your answer solved their problem.

I've had answers accepted over a year after I left them, so sometimes you just have to be patient.
