I recently asked a soft question on MSE that garnered a variety of informative answers. After reading through the answers, as well as discovering some information from answers to other questions, I wrote up an answer that included what I felt to be the most pertinent excerpts from other answers. However, I have a few questions now:
Should I include links to the profiles of the users I cite, in addition to the links to their answers (which I already included)?
On MSE, it is recommended to accept answers (even your own), in order to mark questions as "solved" (and close them).
When you accept your own answer, you don't get the usual 15 reputation points. You get up- or down-votes, though.
Currently, your own answer is the one with the recent activity; if I choose to rank answers according to activity (it's a tab under the comments section below your question, at the right of the page), yours shows up at the top. (This will change, of course, if further answers will be posted, or if any of the answers already given gets edited.)
In any case, if you feel that none of the given answers fully addresses your own question, but that the one that you have compiled does, it is perfectly fine (and I encourage you) to accept your own; nobody will have hard feelings.
