What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Situation: currently if you click on the "Unanswered" tab, it shows you questions with no accepted answer that you might be interested in.

Unfortunately if you were to answer a few of these, and no answer yet be accepted, and you come back a few days later, it's difficult to know which of those question you already looked at and answered, but the author just hasn't selected anything yet:

Feature request: add some means of me knowing "you already answered that one" to it.

Thanks. -r

Now this is a power-user change. It would most benefit the kind of people answering so much that that is an issue to them...meaning people who are contributing a lot. I like it. (Why has this 3-year-old feature request has not been status-[...] tagged, by the way? ...just low-visibility due to low vote count?) –  A.M. Jul 22 '13 at 19:01

It might not be a bad idea to tint the number of answers box a new color if one of the answers is yours (red for 0 answers, green for 1+ answers, some other color if one of the 1+ answers is yours):

@roger You don't need to accept this answer; you probably want to wait until a dev weighs in on if they're going to implement some form of your request or not –  Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '10 at 17:29
