which time limit? the two days limit is only for accepting your own answer, not for others –  Tobias Kienzler Oct 5 '10 at 9:50

@tobias he's probably referring to the 15 minute minimum accept time. –  Jeff Atwood Oct 5 '10 at 10:14
    
@Jeff I didn't know about that... But I never had the luck of such a helpful answer within 5 minutes on the other hand –  Tobias Kienzler Oct 5 '10 at 10:19
    
@Jeff I sure was :) - Do you think it's a bug? –  user151998 Oct 5 '10 at 10:19

I don't view this as a bug.

We're just letting you know the capability is there. And just because you get an answer within 10 minutes doesn't mean it's a good idea to accept it so early.

Fine as-is.
