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

In the health stats of proposals that haven't gained any questions or answers, the Question:Answer ratio stat says NaN.


I think it should be changed to something like N/A.

This is completely accurate. Dividing 0 by 0 produces not-a-number. Appropriate for a site that's frequented by programmers and a nice touch. – Uphill Luge Oct 19 '10 at 20:20
Should be nullity, not NaN. Transreal math FTW! – JSONBog Oct 19 '10 at 20:37
@Hans: StackOverflow is only frequented by programmers, the other sites are focussed on other topics. – Gelatin Oct 19 '10 at 21:09
is this about educating yahoos with questions or dumbing down everybody to the same level? – Uphill Luge Oct 19 '10 at 22:26

It now says "0". It's less correct, but probably less confusing for the average user.
