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 got a rather unsatisfactory answer on Stack Overflow but the subsequent discussion with the answerer (in the comments below) was helpful. Should I accept his answer? Or is there a way to accept a specific comment?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The usual way is to ask the answerer to edit their comment into the answer, and then to accept that.

Unless stackoverflow, in its infinite wisdom, automatically converts your answer back into a comment – c-urchin Nov 10 '11 at 16:06
