Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I have answered for questions in SO (some are asked by me) and in that, some answers are accepted with +1s, some are accepted with no +1s, and some are not accepted. Is there any way I can count or track on accepted answers I posted which are not for questions I asked?

Note: I know how to track accepted answers using isaccepted:1 user:484082

i think this is pulling out everything :( – blasteralfred Ψ Aug 13 '12 at 12:00
True, my bad. Looks like Jon tip is the best for now, don't think there is any built-in way to find such data. – Shadow Wizard Aug 13 '12 at 12:25
If you are familiar with SQL, you could use the Stack Exchange Data Explorer to find this information. That database is refreshed once every few months (the most current data in there for Stack Overflow right now is June 26th). – jadarnel27 Aug 13 '12 at 12:41

One simple option for doing it manually every so often: go to and count the lines containing (15) or [15] - you wouldn't get 15 rep for anything other than an accepted answer to a non-self-asked question.

(I'm not entirely sure of the difference between the bracket types at the moment. Looking at that now...)

Don't see any [15] in my data. Good tip though! :) – Shadow Wizard Aug 13 '12 at 12:29

You can use data.SE and query the data dump.

For your convenience, I've built a query that I believe will find the ID's of your accepted answers.

Only problem is that the data there is not live. – Shadow Wizard Aug 13 '12 at 14:26
It's close enough, really. If that's a really big deal you can always look on your profile page and add in the ones that aren't there. They'll be few, from the last 4 weeks or less. – gobernador Aug 13 '12 at 14:29

Recycled/Included/Reused Answer

(You can use this StackExchange Data Explorer query.

Zero and non-zero accepted count. Self-accepted answers do not count.

Enter User ID, you can also switch between sites: screen-shot

Hope this helps you.
Thanks @durron597 for suggesting in chat
