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

I'd like a feature whereby I will be reminded to accept an answer to a question that I have asked. When I ask questions, I usually like to give them a day or so to collect answers before I choose an answer as the accepted one.

It would be good if I could tick a checkbox when asking a question to have SO/SF/SU remind me 24 hours later that I have a question that needs reviewing. This would purely be optional (similar to the "notify... daily of new answers" option), but would keep reminding me until I either accepted an answer or stated that I didn't want to. This would prevent me from forgetting about the question and never accepting an answer.

I can't figure out when it was implemented, but the profile now displays "Have you considered accepting an answer or starting a bounty for this question?" for a month above old questions without accepted answers. I'd wager that your request is considered [status-completed]. – Pops Oct 29 '10 at 15:53
@PopularDemand A month is a far cry from the 24 hours the OP is suggesting... – Camilo Martin Feb 19 '12 at 2:20
@CamiloMartin, you misread, the questions don't have to be a month old. The message gets displayed for a month. I'm not sure how old the questions have to be, but I'm certain it's far less than a month. – Pops Feb 19 '12 at 22:36
