Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

In situations where new users don't know how to accept answers is there a basic tutorial with pictures that I can direct them to that explains how to accept answers? Usually when someone asks how to accept answers I will post something along the lines of:

Click the Check Box image that is in the upper left hand corner of the answer you want to accept.

But this may be confusing, especially for users who don't speak very good English (which seems to be a large portion of non-answers).
