What happens when questions are merged? Specifically, what happens to the question body itself, and what if all the merged questions had an accepted answer? Which answer will be the accepted one after the merge?
I have a particular problem with this merged question. Two issues:
- The original question was about -20V to +20V input; the merged question about -2V to +2V. My method for solving the former (if you allow me saying) is clever, but is specific for this problem, where the input voltages go beyond the rails, and it doesn't work for the -2V to +2V. So, however elaborated, it seems out of place, and maybe even a bad answer, depending how you look at it. I find this very frustrating.
- No, I don't remember if my answer was the accepted one before the merge. But the currently accepted answer frustrates me as well. I know, the user who asks the question is free to accept any answer he wants, but I have the impression that the accepted answer may have been accepted because it was the only answer, again before the merge. It's very brief, vague and has no detail whatsoever. I try to give detailed answers so that others can learn from them. Again, frustrating.
