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

Just wondering: sometimes I do that tentatively but then change my mind (for a short while).

As far as I know you don't get a notification when someone accepts your answer. You just get more reputation. – HoLyVieR Jul 24 '11 at 16:31
... and get less if the answer is unaccepted. – Mat Jul 24 '11 at 16:43

There aren't notifications for accepted answers.
The users will notice that, when you accept their answer, their reputation is increased, and it is decreased when you deselect their answer as accepted. If they watch the tab showing their reputation, they will notice one of their answer has been accepted as they see a +15, when you accept the answer.

Is it just me or does it actually sound fun to play with someone's reputation like that? lol – Mehrdad Jul 25 '11 at 6:21

A user is not notified when his/her answer is accepted or unaccepted, so they will not be notified if you change the accepted answer.
