I saw the same problem as in this (Two accepted answers?) post on Math.SE. I want to pay attention on it, because it linked post is written that this bug has been yet fixed.

enter image description here

Quote comes from Two accepted answers? :

I noticed this anomaly after clicking the "load new answers" link on this question:

As far as I can tell, this was caused by the following sequence of events:

  1. I loaded the question with one accepted answer and left the tab open for a while.
  2. Meanwhile, a new answer was posted and the OP changed this to be the accepted answer.
  3. I returned to the tab, noticed the "load new answers" banner, and clicked it.
  4. The new answer got loaded, but now both were shown as accepted.

Of course, refreshing the page fixes the issue.

  • @Oded Just curious, but does the accepted-answer state get live-refreshed? As in, if you load a page that has an accepted answer, and that answer get unaccepted, would that state ever refresh automatically, or does it only refresh the vote counts? – animuson Oct 7 '13 at 18:18

    @animuson - I would think you would need to refresh the whole page for that. The accept status is not live-refreshed. What happened here is a rather rare race. Not really worth fixing. – Oded Oct 7 '13 at 18:19

As commented by @Oded:

The accept status is not live-refreshed. What happened here is a rather rare race. Not really worth fixing.

Accepting two answers marked as solved suggests that the symptoms described in this question are still occurring.
