  • So please edit away the unanswered part, so that there does not rise confusion. And create the new question with wrong flagging - I'm interested in it too, but don't want to steal your rep. :) Commented Feb 3, 2012 at 21:48

  • No. It's not about editing the question, but opening the second question, about how to revoke a flag. Oh, but I found that question: meta.askubuntu.com/q/2101/10068 it already exists. Commented Feb 4, 2012 at 2:47

I will answer your second question (so make a new one for the first).

If you have accepted an answer and no longer accept it because it is incorrect:

  • Click the tick again to undo the acceptance. The answerer loses 15 rep, but that's okay.

If your answer has been accepted but it is not correct, here is the solution:

  • If the system does not allow you to delete it, you can always leave a comment for the OP, edit your answer with a note, or flag your own answer. However, you should not have this problem because IIRC you can delete an answer that gets accepted.

You must log in to answer this question.
