First off, I like the idea of accept rate. I'm tired of giving good answers and not having them accepted. The idea of adding another incentive to accept answers was another great idea by SO.
I have found a problem though (in my experience at least) which I'm wondering if other people would like to see tweaked.
My issue is that I have asked several questions where a few answers have been given, but none of them has answered the question or solved my problem.
The answers have no upvotes but SO still complains that I haven't accepted an answer and brings down my accept rate for not picking an incorrect answer.
My accept rate has not suffered terribly, but I've asked several difficult obscure questions just to probe the community for knowledge and those questions usually don't receive answers that merit acceptance. I don't think I should be penalized at all for NOT accepting an incorrect answer.
Maybe the question should have at least one upvoted answer before being counted?
What do you folks think?
