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

It always happens that we open a question only to discover that a particular user has a very low acceptance rate. I think some sort of feature should be added so that by looking at the user name in the list of questions, we get to know that this user has low acceptance rate.

One possibility would be to use different color names depending on the band of acceptance rate.

Say, for 80 - 100 -> Green, 60 - 79 - > Blue, 40 - 59 -> Gray etc.

Do you only answer the question for the rep points or do you want to help create a great Q&A site.

The only reason I won't answer a question would be when the asker is rude or extremely lazy. But you can't show that using colors ;-).

Well Reps are good incentives to answering, isn't it? :) – Shamim Hafiz Dec 10 '10 at 8:04
Gamecat - some of us have limited amount of time available. As such, I would prefer to asnwer te questions for which I'm likely to get more rep over the ones for which i'm likely to get less. It's a way to choose which questions to answer, NOT a way to find an excuse not to answer. FWIW, I think that the proposed feature has pretty much no value add, even if I understand the reason behind the request. – DVK Dec 10 '10 at 13:35
