I keep fairly good tabs on my questions for a week or two after I ask them. Three or four times now it has happened that one of my questions was left unanswered, and then I come back months later and an answer is there, usually within 2 weeks of when I asked it. Furthermore, I can't accept these answers now. Is there some way these are appearing?

  • $\begingroup$ Your profile indicates that all the questions you have asked either have accepted answers or no answers at all. Do you have an example for such question with a "ghost answer"? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It might be related to the fact that you have (at least) two accounts: the one you currently use and this one. If you want those two accounts to be merged, leave a comment here or flag this post and a moderator should take care of this soon. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ah yes, I would like these merged into the one I'm using now. Thanks. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Based on the comments it seems that this is not a bug, so I've retagged your post from bug to support. I've also added user-accounts - I guess this is an appropriate tag for questions related to merging accounts. $\endgroup$ Aug 4 '12 at 8:02

    $\begingroup$ @Jeff: Check to see if everything seems like it's now in line? $\endgroup$

The issue was resolved in the comments: there were two accounts which are merged now.
