It is a bug in OSQA, see here http://jira.osqa.net/browse/OSQA-779 .... sorry for not catching it before asking. Please upgrade, whent it is fixed.

EDIT: The OSQA issue has moved to https://github.com/dzone/osqa/issues/358

It's not a bug, the OSQA's accept rate has just a different meaning than the one from StackExchange.

@scai - It is filed in their bugsystem and fixed, so I think they recogniyed it as a bug. However POW can differ, I agree.

@gorn No, according to this ticket it is still unresolved although there is a patch available.

BTW SO stopped to display the accept rate at all because they recognizide, that its disadvantages outweight its benefits. http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/136951/lets-stop-displaying-a-users-accept-rate/164654#164654

I think it works like this. Say you have answered 10 questions and 2 have been accepted that so 2/10 equals 20%. which is an excellent measure of your ability to answer a question. You can test this by clicking users and picking one, scroll down to their answers and how many were accepted.

No, this isn't excellent at all. A question can have multiple good answers but only one answer can be accepted.

Gorns 20% rate and your 24% ARE excellent but I agree to a point that accept% is a little flawed but together with Karma its Ok and not worth whinging about.
