I'm pretty new to this site. I was wondering what the accepted practice was with questions like this where OP has been answered in comments but there are no answers to 'accept'.
Open since May 13th. Question is about a slang term in AusEng but later is confirmed as BrEng question by OP, though question has not been updated. A commenter links to an urbandictionary definition page and OP says that his question has now been answered even though the quotes given as examples in the question are from that particular page? Regardless, unless the question is closed or something similar, it will remain near the top of 'unanswered'.
Similarly, with questions that have remained 'unanswered' for a while but with comments that basically state the answer, particularly if OP has replied and is satisfied, should someone else write these comments as a new answer?
