I have noticed today that my (and other users) acceptance rate is non-existent anymore. Usually gave me motivation to go ahead and solve my own questions to keep it above 90%.

Is it permanently removed ? What's the deal ?

  • IIRC acceptance rate is only shown if it's "poor". Like, 60% or lower? Somewhere near that. Jan 25 '13 at 20:27
  • It seems to be gone even for users with poor acceptance rates.

As off 2 days ago the accept rate has been removed across the network as per the following feature request: Let's stop displaying a user's accept rate.

On the bigger sites it was generating more noise then what was required, and it was mostly demotivating to most users. Since the focus should be on good answers, and not reputation gain.

    Great, helpful answer, even if I disagree wholeheartedly with the policy change behind it.
