I try to keep my acceptance rate at above 90%. Is there a way to filter for questions that have not been accepted so I don't have to check every one? Seems silly but as the number of questions grows the task gets harder.

Currently, I know of no way to filter out questions with an accepted answer. The fastest way is to look for the green rectangles around the number of answers:

The posts with the green rectangles have an accepted answer. (I'm sorry if you already know this, it's the only way I know to look for questions with(out) accepted answers other than opening them).


The answer by Martin Sleziak seems to answer your question in the affirmative. This link should show you what you want.

  • $\begingroup$ Note that on other sites, the indication might be different. For example, on Physics.SE, it is a green circle, on GameDev.SE it is a green hexagon, and on Stats.SE it is a green triangle. However, on all the sites I have seen, it is green highlight of some sort. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No offense to you robjohn, obviously a very valued member of the community, but OP, let this be a lesson in waiting a little bit to see if someone else can provide a better answer before accepting one. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Graphth: daniel is free to accept Martin Sleziak's answer instead if he feels that it answers his question better. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Recently there was a meta.SO question about the same thing: Indication on main question page that the question is answered $\endgroup$ Oct 8, 2012 at 12:39

If you have a look at help for advanced search you will find out that hasaccepted:1 returns questions which have an accepted answer and hasaccepted:0 retuns questions which do not have an accepted answer.

You might want to sort the search results according to your preference (newest/active).

To find your own questions without an accepted answer you can search for hasaccepted:0 user:me. (And again, you can then sort the results in the way which is suitable for you.)

  • $\begingroup$ Nice! I had never noticed that. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Intresting. If only we could also avoid people who refuse to accept any answer. (accept rate 1% or less). Although accept rates depends on the difficulty of the question accepting less than 2% is probably silly. $\endgroup$
