  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Are accepted answers playing some role in particular top tag answerers list or only up voted answers are taken into account?

Can you elaborate a bit? What exactly are you trying to highlight? Are you asking if accepting an answer depends on high rep of user or based on no.of votes? – Sachin Shanbhag Apr 7 '11 at 9:35
I'm asking if accepted answers on some tag are also taken into account in some way or if only up voted answers can put you higher on top users list for some tag. – yojimbo87 Apr 7 '11 at 9:42
AFAIK, only upvotes on non-CW answers are counted. – Pëkka Apr 7 '11 at 9:50
@Pekka that's what I also know, isn't there official explanation about how top users of a tag are being calculated? – Shadow Wizard Apr 7 '11 at 10:46
