Does this influence my accept rate ?

Can I still reach a 100% accept rate now ?

  • @Al Everett : I 'm just one of those guys that like to tidy up , that's all. And apart from that: sometimes I just wonder about such things. It has helped me a lot over the years just to get to know and understand systems I am using ( any system I am using). Not necessarily because I need it now, but simple because I want to know it ( and think I am going to be able to use that knowledge in the future ). – Edelcom Apr 3 '11 at 13:54

Taken from the blog entry:

  • The accept rate is the percentage of answers accepted based on the questions asked by the user.
  • The accept rate is calculated on questions that are older than 3 days.
  • The accept rate is heavily cached and can take 24hrs or more to update.
  • The accept rate is only calculated when the user has 4 or more questions.

Which questions do not affect the accept rate?

The following questions are not included in the accept rate calculation:

  • Community Wiki Questions
  • Closed Questions
  • Questions with no answers

What does the accept rate mean?

  • If the stat doesn’t appear at all, it’s a new user, or someone who rarely asks questions.
  • If you see a low percentage, it’s a user who asks a lot of questions but accepts almost no answers.
  • If you see a high percentage, it’s an engaged user, someone who frequently goes back and interacts with their questions after asking.
  • If you see a middle of the road percentage, it’s an experienced user who understands what accepted answers are for.
