As of September 8th, 2021, accepted answers are no longer pinned on Stack Overflow and probably soon on other sites in the network as well. For some users, this is the realization of a long-standing request; other users might prefer the old situation. For them, I wrote this simple user script which pins the accepted answer at the top.

That is, if it's on the same page (some questions have so many answers they need to be paginated) and self-answers are not pinned (unless they rank highest in votes/oldest/active, as before).

    Thanks @Glorfindel I got it installed successfully. With the aid of a tool, I can now enable and disable pinning the accepted answer at the top with just a click. Most probably I will leave it turned on for pinning accepted answers at the top permanently. Thanks for the kind contribution again! :-)
