Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I know there is already some reputation that you gain when you accept answers. Is there something which encourages people to considering accepting answers?

For example if you consistently maintain an accept rate > 85% then you earn some points.

If you maintain a reasonable accept rate above 70% the benefit you reap comes in the form of a lack of comments bugging you to accept more answers.

That would be like a manager asking his programmers to produce n lines of code every week.
