What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I've noticed quite a few people recently with a 0% acceptance rate. (and more than I'd seen in the past).

I'm not sure what could be causing this, but I think one thing may help to steer these new users in the right direction is an announcement/update put to them when their acceptance rate is 0%.

By announcement I mean how it will alert you when you get new badges and such. I had something in mind like

You have a 0% acceptance rate. You should learn more about how to accept answers and how the site works

(where bold is relevant links)

I also hate it when people get frustrated with beginners with a 0% acceptance rate and tell them to up it, without giving any useful information. "0% accept rate" sounds very alien to a beginner. I always link to the faq entry. – marcog Jan 2 '11 at 10:20
