I had posted a rebus puzzle and users solved it. After all of them were solved, I posted a CW answer with all the answers of the puzzle.
I tried to accept my answer after I posted it and a popup came with the following message:

You can accept your own answer tomorrow

So, the next day, I saw answered 22 hours ago below the answer and when I clicked the accept button, this popup message came:

You can accept your own answer in 8 hours

Isn't that popup message supposed to show 2 hours instead of 8 hours as a day consist of 24 hours? How is a day 30 hours?

Here is my answer(7 hours was 8 hours a minute ago):

Self-answers can only be accepted 2 days after the question is posted. You posted your question at 2015-02-28 13:57:02Z, and the self-answer at 2015-03-01 07:42:14Z, which was approximately 17.75 hours after the question was posted. Hence, you had 30.25 hours left to wait, which was "rounded" and displayed as one day.

    $\begingroup$ That makes sense! I didn't know that self-answers can only be accepted 2 days after the question is posted. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Spikatrix Mar 2 '15 at 13:07
