There are now getting on for 1,000 questions on meta (actually 924), of which 901 are Open and 23 are Closed. Of the Open ones 838 have answers and 63 not. There are 336 questions with Accepted answers. The Acceptance rate (all questions), a pitiful 37%, is even lower than on main (47%).
However Acceptance on meta may be far more relevant than on main, where at stake is merely rep 15+2 per question and an often not very significant indication to others of suitability. On meta there are fewer than 4,000 users, compared with over 35,000 on main. In part because of the reputation minimum (in theory) in part because meta users may be self-selecting for activity, meta users should have a better understanding of the use and meaning of ticks than the average main user. I don't know what the average rep per user is on the two but would expect that to be higher on meta than on main.
Acceptance and answer rate (it is 100% on main) is more relevant on meta because it is the part of the site where users discuss the workings and policies of Travel Stack Exchange.
Lack of Acceptance on meta however can be because the question has been pink tagged. There is no easy way to find for how many questions however, and a pink tag does not necessarily mean no answer nor no Accepted answer.
Lack of an Answer can be because there is nothing to answer – for example, though tagged discussion Announcement: new mobile ads that post does not include a question and there is not really much to respond to, though the post does include we're interested in your feedback (it is from three years ago as has not had an answer so far).
The above make it very difficult to identify issues that are still relevant and have not yet been addressed. For example, selecting the
unanswered tab does not filter out questions with pink tags and there seems no way to do so as a set (eg they do not all include
This may explain, in part, why there has been so little action even on posts tagged bug:
Bug with posting comments 2 years ago
Colour of Hot Network Questions 8 months ago
The tagging system appears to be broken 3 days ago
The above extracted from a selection of ten (the other four with pink tags). For questions without answers tagged [feature-request] there are no pink tags, four from 2013 and one recent.
It would help if the
unanswered tab did not include questions with pink tags and also to have an option to treat all pink tags as a collection when searching but this feature request is to
create a tag, preferably pink, for 'announcements'
A lot of questions with no answers on meta, though often tagged discussion have no answer because there is nothing to answer, or discuss. These 'questions' are announcements, exhortations and rants. There is no way to separate these out at present, but examples include some here. Because there is no way to separate these out at present they are getting in the way of issues that deserve, but are not receiving, attention.
