A long time ago we discussed the importance of the accept rate. Here are some examples:
- Should we worry about accept rate? - 16 votes on question, 25 votes + accepted answer on request to remove + 24 combined votes on other answers
- Can the accept rate be removed? - 16 votes on question + 10 combined votes on answers
- Why would anyone accept an answer? - Some backbround on why this is an issue
I was a bit disappointed when the new site design didn't hide the accept rates. The general consensus when those questions were asked was that we can't change anything now since were in beta but once we get out of beta, this will change. Which hasn't.
Is this something that can be done?
