I just noticed on Stack Overflow that the acceptance percentage is missing on questions and peoples' profiles? Why was this removed?

Only users who have asked at least 4 non-wiki questions that are open, older than 3 days, and have at least one answers have their Accept Rate displayed.

That's explained here


The following rules are used in the calculation:

  • Questions must not be community wiki.
  • Questions must not be closed.
  • Questions must be more than 3 days old.
  • Questions must have at least 1 answer.
  • There must be at least four eligible questions as determined by the above rules, otherwise the statistic will not appear.

This information has been copied to a FAQ: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5234/…, near "What's with the Accept Rate?" – Peter Mortensen Jun 25 '10 at 19:49

They were never there. They show up in questions only.

See e.g. here

I can see your 92% percentage.
