  • What? No. It has a [status-completed] tag, it doesn't need an answer per se. Certainly not a "dummy answer". That's not how it works. – nhinkle May 15 '11 at 19:18
  • @nhinkle: than why was it still showing up in meta.superuser.com/unanswered ? – SamB May 15 '11 at 20:33
  • In fact, it looks like there needs to be an upvoted answer to get it off that list... – SamB May 15 '11 at 20:35
  • because it doesn't have an answer. It's not that big of a deal. Accepting a "dummy answer" is counterproductive. If Ivo had posted an answer saying, "OK, this is completed" then I would have accepted it, but a "dummy answer" does not answer the question. I appreciate your trying to help, and your flags on various other Meta questions have been quite helpful, but would suggest you delete this answer, as it doesn't do anything useful. – nhinkle May 15 '11 at 20:35
  • I edited your answer to a better format for denoting that a request is completed. On a related note, see this feature request: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/65429/… – nhinkle May 15 '11 at 20:48
