Stack Exchange recently changed the way answers are sorted on Stack Overflow, meaning that accepting an answer no longer pins it to the top (regardless of sorting method). It still has the green check-mark next to it, and accepting an answer is still exactly the same for the purposes of reputation, badges, green marker next to a question, etc.

Stack Exchange is also asking the other sites in the network whether they'd like this behaviour or not, as this is now a site-configurable setting.

Does anyone on this site have a preference?

    My vote is to unpin it like SO have. The new sorting feels more intuitive to me

    Yes, unpin the accepted answer.
