So now and then, I check the unanswered tab to see whether there are unanswered questions. A couple of them contain comments that include an answer.
For some of the Q&As I have asked the person that placed the comment whether they could post it as an answer.
Unfortunately, in the majority of the cases the answer remains unanswered as some users do not post answers.
Now I wonder whether it is acceptable if I extend a comment that is actually an answer, write it in my own words and post it as an answer.
On one hand it feels bad to post someones comment as an answer, but on the other hand it is also tedious that the number of unanswered questions is increasing while there are comments that basically answer the question.
