I asked a question "Recommendations on how to introduce an inexperienced player to the FATE combat system". mxyzplk♦ responded with a comment that led me to an answer, but wasn't an answer in and of itself. I responded with my actual answer with what worked for me. My question is, should my answer be considered for the accepted answer to the question?

If the original commenter does not post the same answer, or gives their blessing, then yes. Else give the check to the original commenter.

    \$\begingroup\$ Agreed. In this case I'm fine with it - I never came back to the question and I'm not hurtinl for rep :-). In the future you may want to "call out" to the commenter by using the @mxyzplk syntax, it gives them an alert that they've been referred to. You commented after me and called me by name, but I didn't get notifications without the @. \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk - SE stop being evil Sep 7 '11 at 21:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah... I didn't know the @ syntax notified you. I'll remember that, and that's actually a good comment for this, as some others might not be aware of that detail. \$\endgroup\$ – Chuck Dee Sep 8 '11 at 3:42
