What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Any StackDB gurus want to take a stab at this?

I've noticed that in my personal experience of answering questions any kind of homework/puzzle programming puzzle is least likely to generate a "best answer" selection. Python users live up to their stereotype by almost always selecting one. Of course this is just my extremely skewed perception... what's your take?

Sounds like an interesting data point - I'd like to see this, especially with tags ranked in order from most likely to least likely. I imagine a crosstab of this with a few other variables would be telling as well - perhaps # of answers, time of day/day of week posted, rep of OP, votes... –  Adam Davis Apr 13 '10 at 21:07

I've extracted some stats that you can see here: http://hewgill.com/~greg/stackoverflow/tagstats.html

Click on the column headings to sort by that column. To reduce the data volume, this only contains data for tags with 10 questions or more.
