Misleading notification about accepted answer in activity feed

Hana Kučerová Community Leader Jan 01, 2021

Hi community,

when somebody accepts the answer to the question I've answered, I'm able to see in my activity feed this text: "User XYZ accepted your answer to Question ABC"... But this notification is visible also in the cases, when the accepted answer is not mine (e.g. I've participated, but the author of the accepted answer is not me). This is confusing.


Maybe somebody has already reported this, but I didn't find it.

Is it a known problem?

Thank you very much!

Hi Hana,
I have just double checked for my feed but it seems to be free of this effect.

This is very strange, indeed, I believe the post is found using this link but I see a reply from Jack there. It would be interesting to know what he sees in feed...


Hi @Daniel Ebers ,

thank you, yes, this is the post.

This problem occurs even if I didn't participate and just watched the question. Maybe it is somehow connected to the watching functionality... I use it a lot, when I see something interesting and want to know the answer from the others...

Ah! I see, the >watch< function it is. Yes, then it sounds like a bug :-/
Never noticed before to be honest. Let's see if there will be feedback in a few days :-)

Yes, thank you.

Just found this question from another user, who is probably experiencing the same thing, so it seems to me it is something more global.
