Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Hmmm... either I'm stupid or something is wrong. I just tried Koper's idea to find my ratio of accepted and not accepted answers on SO.

user:me isaccepted:0

returns 52 answers,

user:me isaccepted:1

returns 72. According to my profile, I have a total of 218 answers. What am I missing (besides 94 answers)? Just searching for


on the other hand finds 232 results, although it should be 218+11=229.

I think this is because isaccepted:0 returns the 52 answers you've given where the question has no accepted answer. Presumably there are another 94 questions where an answer has been accepted, but it was not one of yours.

Shouldn't that be the difference between hasaccepted and isaccepted? – Arjan Mar 1 '10 at 15:56
@Arjan perhaps the semantics are jumbled, but hasaccepted means another thing. If I query user:me hasaccepted:0, that will return all the questions I have asked that are not accepted. – Rich Seller Mar 1 '10 at 16:10
Oh of course, questions versus answers, hasaccepted and isaccepted are probably unrelated indeed. – Arjan Mar 1 '10 at 16:12
this is correct – Jeff Atwood Mar 1 '10 at 22:52
If Jeff says so I guess I can believe it. Accepted. – balpha Mar 2 '10 at 9:36
I don't think I believe it though. I'm never right – Rich Seller Mar 2 '10 at 10:01
There's always a first time :) – balpha Mar 2 '10 at 16:46
