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
Another example: stackoverflow.com/users/656848/user656848 – martin clayton Mar 23 '11 at 6:36
And another: stackoverflow.com/users/666000/flaming-desriable-heart -- 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.
