The question has been closed for the following reason "The question is answered, right answer was accepted" by kunal361 01 May '14, 20:43

The thing is that usually, most people only upvote and thank as a comment, and that doesn't make your accepted rate go up...

Also, the rate seems to be very rounded to the units place... I have 25 accepted answers amongst my 339 answers which gives Ac ~ 7.37% which is rounded to 7% only..

And one more answer got accepted, now it is 26 out of 340 which gives AR=7.64 % which is still rounded to 7.:D (they are using floor :p :p :D)..

@kuruma I beat you in this area! Around 11% accepted out of 324 answers! But i am no where close when it comes to writing tutorials! You are too good there.

@kcahdog, we are both here to learn with eachother and also with people who are better than us!! :D I've been loving this journey so far and I still hope to learn much, much more :D

Yep. Even i have learned a lot here (quite a few things from your tutorials ) in the past 1 year. Hopefully thus year is also as good if not better.

Accept rate is not dependent on upvotes or downvotes. It is dependent on the number of answers of yours that are marked as accepted by the person asking the question. As you have asked this question you will see a circle with a tick mark under the upvote/downvote arrows. If you click on that circle you will mark the answer as accepted.

You should mark an answer as accepted if it satisfactorily answers you query/solves your doubt.
