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

I thought accept rate was only supposed to be shown if a user has 4 non-wiki questions older than 3 days. I was looking at this question, and the user only has 2 questions, and one of those is less than an hour old. Indeed, the tooltip says there is only one eligible question:


Why is this user's accept rate being displayed?

we did refactor the way we store this ... may be a regression – waffles Mar 23 '11 at 4:47

And another: -- the accept rate itself is accurate, it just shouldn't be complaining for this user quite yet. – Charles Mar 23 '11 at 6:54

This was my fault, we totally changed how this works on the back-end to optimize it. Also, instead of a sliding expiration (with a pretty much unpredictable change time) that it was, this is calculated daily for all users.

However...yours truly lost the >= 4 check on the question count when doing this, oops!

This will be fixed in the next build.
