Stack Exchange staff recently announced that they are considering the prospect of unpinning the accepted answer from the top of answers, and instead sort them by votes.
I noticed some of the other communities discussing this on their meta sites, so I thought of initiating a discussion on Chemistry Meta too.
This setting will be configurable per site. The default setting will be fixed according to the preference of the majority among the Stack Exchange Network.
After a decision is taken, one of us could report it at the main Meta. If permitted, I would like to do that, in hope of garnering some upvotes and rep :) The last date to give feedback is the 19th of this month.
