The "accept rate" feature seems useless to me and only leads into frustration for those asking questions.

See this question. (And no, it's not a duplicate as that question isn't a feature request...)

    An explanation of the accept rate needs to be explained to everyone. People still think its necessary to have a 100% accept rate – TheLQ Oct 31 '10 at 19:43

    I don't think that explaining why it is useless is the right solution, and a lot of people don't read everything... – Tamara Wijsman Nov 1 '10 at 1:36
  • Accept rate is not displayed any more, for details see: Let's stop displaying a user's accept rate – yannis Jan 29 '13 at 10:56

Accept Rate is a great concept for the completely non-subjective sites like Stack Overflow, but probably doesn't work as well for a more subjective site like Programmers.

I agree. People judge otherwise useful answers according to someones "Accept Rate".

It's there, it's sort of interesting, it may or may not be probative.

We're coders for goodness sake, can't we all accept that and refrain from overanalyzing?
