What exactly is this "accept rate"? Got this doubt since this is being shown against the names of the people who are posting questions. Is this the rate a person accepts answers for their questions or is this the rate a person's answers are accepted by others?
May be FAQs require an update.
No Jobin, I was just reading the other thread, it is the other way. Jamie says "it's the number of questions the user has accepted an answer for, divided by the number of their total questions (x100). Same as SO.". It is not about how a persons answers are accepted, it is about how a person accepts answers for his/her own questions.
You really need to know how many questions they've asked along with the accept rate. But yeah, if someone has asked 10 questions and got a 0% accept rate I might think twice about answering. Take https://answers.atlassian.com/users/7423/miki-y/ - 3 questions, 2 with good answers, 0 accepted.
To be fair, and I don't mean to be singling people out, I think in this case the user just doesn't realise that you should accept an answer, as in both cases they've come back and said "thanks, this helps" or whatever. I think when you post a question it should say "btw, maybe you should consider accepting an answer on these 10 questions...".
Fair enough, I have deleted that comment. However I took pains to say that in this case it was probably a misunderstanding rather than the person being rude. I pointed out that that person had come back and graciously said "thank you", which to me is way more important and rewarding than 25 karma points, as is discussed in another thread.
