it was happend to me in two questions. i asked the question; and after a lot of effort i found the solution. but i could not mark my answer as Final Answer. don't you think this limitation in not necessary? and what happens to users' points in such cases?

  • possible duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/16880/… – ChrisF Apr 11 '10 at 21:27
  • @chrisf I would not call that a duplicate, this is "why can't I?" and the other is "I want different behavior." One does not proceed from the other, necessarily. – Jeff Atwood Apr 11 '10 at 22:18
  • @Jeff - fair enough. I'd withdraw my close vote if I could ;) – ChrisF Apr 12 '10 at 11:57

You can accept your own answers after waiting 48 hours.

  • oh i didn't know. so it would be a good idea that user be informed about this. – Alexar Apr 11 '10 at 21:24
  • @takpar - if you try to accept your own answer before the 48 hours are up you should get a pop up telling you that you have to wait. – ChrisF Apr 11 '10 at 21:25
  • @takpar - I hate this waiting period. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/16880/… – ripper234 Apr 11 '10 at 21:25

    Too bad takpar didn't figure this out, then mark his own answer as accepted. – Onion-Knight Apr 12 '10 at 19:24
