Like lots of stackoverflow members, I'm trying my best to answer community questions, because I really believe in that kind of help.

Every time I ask for help, I spend a lot of time to ask clear questions, providing code and examples. I reply to comments asking me for more details. I vote for useful tips and finally I mark the correct answer because it helps the community and I can say thank you to the user who helped me.

I'm really angry and disappointed by people asking questions, obtaining the good answer in less than 10 minutes and who never mark the answer as correct or never give a comment to explain what is wrong with this or that answer.

Is there a reasonable length in time where the question is considered as "over" and the answer with the most vote would be considered as okay?

Is there a kind of reminder or alert to ask the user who asked the question to validate the answers to the question?

These 2 questions, in my opinion, deserve a talk and eventually a new feature to be implemented on stackoverflow.

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.

    I don't think this is a dupe: that one is a feature that automatically accepts an answer on behalf of the asker; this feature is just a reminder to accept some answers. – doppelgreener Feb 24 '14 at 23:25

    Accept marks aren't that important. Good answers will receive upvotes from the community. – Pëkka Feb 24 '14 at 23:26
  • @Jonathan, the question above is 2 feature requests in one. I feel the first is a dupe of the one Frédéric found, and the other the dupe I just voted for. (Out of many, many, others, especially from the time the "accept rate" was still shown.) – Arjan Feb 24 '14 at 23:33
