How do I mark the best answer to my question on this site?

Apologies if there's a button hiding under my nose and I've missed it, but how do I select the best answer to my question?

(And by "best" answer, we of course do not mean the best answer, but any answer that fully answers the question. Just because an answer is the best answer on the question doesn't mean that the question has been answered to the questioner's satisfaction! :-)

Update: @tohuwawohu confirms that the button is missing:

As site had a short downtime last weekend to update the askbot software (should fix the upload images bug, but didn't sadly). Since that downtime, the button to "accept" an answer has disappeared.
