Take a look at this page of the Help Center - What should I do when someone answers my question?
If you only read the text with special markup, as someone would when skimming the page, it reads like so:
What should I do when someone answers my question?
accepting the answer
mark an answer as accepted
What should I not do?
Do not change the code in the question
Do not add an improved version of the code
- Simply accepting an answer
- Posting a new question
- Posting a self-answer
- Sharing your code on an external site
I left out the part where there's more bolded text in the 3rd and 4th items of the list, but basically, by taking a glance at the page, it reads like you shouldn't do the things that we actually want people to do!
I don't have a good solution for this, which is why I have put this up as a question rather than an answer to other help center cleaning questions like
