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

What is the query string to list all of my questions with no Accepted Answer selected? I would like to bring up my ratio.

Thanks and sorry if this is a dupe.

It's not quite that simple. Wiki and closed questions don't count towards the accept rate. – ChrisF May 11 '10 at 21:14
@ChrisF, you mean, "it's simpler than that," right? – Dan Rosenstark May 11 '10 at 22:22
No - searching for user:me hasaccepted:0 will include CW and closed questions - as well as questions with no answers. To get the number of qualifying questions you'd need to search for user:me closed:0 wiki:0 hasanswers:1 except that hasanswers:1 doesn't exist. Then do the same with hasaccepted:1 to get your accept ratio. – ChrisF May 12 '10 at 10:01
@ChrisF if you put in an answer, then I could accept it. Which is the right thing to do. Although I do now carry a 100% accept rate, it's true that I went mad and accepted an answer for every CW too :) – Dan Rosenstark May 12 '10 at 19:50
I was wrong about hasanswers not existing, it's answers:<n> to return questions that have at least <n> answers, so you'd just need answers:1. – ChrisF May 12 '10 at 20:21

To find all your qualifying questions you'll need this search:

user:me closed:0 wiki:0 answers:1

Then you can find all the questions that you've accepted answers for by adding hasaccepted:1:

user:me closed:0 wiki:0 answers:1 hasaccepted:1

Using these searches on meta I get 14 for the first search and 12 for the second which match the statistics given when hovering over my accept rate.

So of course, to find the questions which you haven't accepted an answer for run this search:

user:me closed:0 wiki:0 answers:1 hasaccepted:0

Which here on meta gives me 2.

See the search page for a full list of the search options.

Awesome, especially the search page. Teach a person to fish... – Dan Rosenstark May 12 '10 at 22:30
Wait there is hovertext over the acceptance rate!? Someone needs to document all these hover texts – Earlz May 13 '10 at 0:03
