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

Do answers to your own question not contribute towards your accept rate? My accept rate is lower than I'd expect it to be for my 'accepted answers:total questions' ratio.

It's probably about right now, actually. Yesterday though I'd accepted 9 from 11 and it was showing 80%I know it would only be about 82% but someone picked up on me not accepting enough answers so I was just wondering if your own answers contributed or not. It looks like they do. – Scott Brown Feb 16 '11 at 14:02

Your accept rate recalculation takes time to reflect on your profile. Just give it around a day's time and your accept rate will be recalculated and updated.

Your own answers to your own questions also are considered in accept rate calculations.
