# How to accept an answer of a question that has answered in comment

I do not know whether it's a good way to ask this question, But I do not find any other way to contact the moderators.

How can I accept an answer to a question that has answered in a comment. I have some questions in Stack Overflow : Computer Science Section which are answered in comments below the question. How can I accept an answer to those questions. Would it create a negative impact on my reputation, If it stays a bit long without being accepted.

In those cases, you cannot accept an answer. A comment is not an answer, so you cannot mark a comment as accepted.

Instead, I recommend you do one of two things:

Write an answer yourself that answers the question (incorporating the insights from the comment). Then, mark it as accepted. This ensures that others who come across your question have a nice, clean answer. Or, you can encourage the person who wrote the comment to turn it into an answer. Generally, if they haven't done that after a day or two, you are welcome to turn it into an answer yourself.

Alternatively, you can do nothing, and don't accept any answer. That is also OK. It won't create a negative impact on your reputation. We won't judge you by this.
