I think it would be best to have accepted answers unpinned on U&L. I see no reason to treat accepted answers specially.

I would suggest that unpinning is the better behaviour. Two situations come to mind: When a question is answered by a quick&dirty solution, that may work for the OP, and may therefore be accepted. If a more robust, less error prone or just more elegant solution is posted later, that will (probably) be upvoted, pushing the inferior, but accepted, solution ...

That feature is unlocked when you get to a particular level of rep (1000). https://unix.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/established-user There's a browser plugin you can install (I have it installed in Chrome) which "unlocks" this feature independent of what your rep happens to be on an SE site. This is the stackapp that allows for this feature w/o 1000 ...

I'd argue that's the intended effect. You should look at those posts and see if any of those are what you're going to ask, and so they should be shown at the first available place where enough information has been gathered to start showing them: where the title has been entered.

If you found this question useful, don't forget to vote both the question and the answers up. only appears if you haven't been seen on the target site for 48 hours you hold a valid user cookie on the target site your account has more than 15 rep on the target site ...

Hover your mouse over the time shown (the words "asked yesterday" in your example, "asked two days ago" in the screenshot below) in the box with the name of the asker of any question and the time will show as a pop-up. The pop-up might show up differently in different browsers. In Chrome on OSX, for example it shows up as white for me. The above screenshot, ...

I think you just didn't wait long enough. In general when I go to a SE site where I'm not logged in but have an account, when I go to the login page and click on the box to input my openid login if I reload that page or if I wait a bit it will detect me and auto log me in. It isn't 100% rock solid across all the various SE properties but in general works I'...

A "day" on Stack Exchange starts at 00:00 UTC time. I believe "Achievements" are shown in absolute UTC days to keep them consistent to the way time spans for caps (to daily reputation, votes...), badges and possibly other things are calculated. There have been requests for that definition to be changed, or for the displayed times to be made more consistent ...

Well, I have been bothered by the logo on the app for a while and think it should be addressed.

I think that's a good idea. Although, as Anton says, many people may not read the instructions, this does not mean it is a waste of time to have them. Some people will, and others can be pointed to them explicitly. This would allow for an easy generic comment "Please indicate your OS as per the instructions". I would even go so far as to implement a ...

The people who tend to read this kind of message are also the people who are smart and attentive enough to provide relevant information in the first place. The people who don't provide critical information are also by and large the same people who don't read what's on their screen and just click on that annoying “Yes, I have read all this information” ...

That's one of the privileges that are unlocked when you have a certain minimum level of rep. It's on a per-site basis, so having the privilege on one site does not automatically provide the same privilege on other sites - unless you already have the requisite rep on the other sites. You are already well past the requirement on Stack Overflow, but have a ways ...
