I posted an answer in response to What will happen if I do not attack Sephiroth on the final battle?

There is now an outstanding post that proves my answer is incorrect. I tried to delete my answer and am greeted with "You cannot delete this accepted answer".

enter image description here

Now what is the point of this feature, as this is now confusing to anyone who reads that page? The only other option I can see is to edit my answer saying this is incorrect please ignore, or copying the correct answer from the other post.

What is the best action for me to take in this situation?

    You could unaccept it, then delete it.

    @jeffreylin_ It was not his question; it was his answer that was accepted.

The general answer
Your only option is to flag it for mod attention and explain the situation -- if everything checks out, a mod can delete for you.
You cannot remove it yourself if accepted, and this is by-design across the entire network.

In this case
This meta post already brought it to our attention, but feel free to flag it anyway to add it to our queue.
