The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

At least the upload file dialog lets me choose a local file but does not display the file name nor does it upload the file...

I'd like to show what the dialog looks like in my case but that's a catch-22, obviously.

Yep, seems to be broken... likely since the upgrade last weekend. We're looking into it....

Speaking of upgrades, what does "accept rate: 29%" mean?

(02 Apr '15, 08:19) Breck Carter

Yes, some hints to new features in the maintenance log would be appreciated:)

IMHO, it means I have currently accepted answers for 29 % of my questions (and don't know whether questions without any answer would be counted here, too). - Initially, I had thought of the opposite, i.e. 29 % of my answers have been accepted by the OP. A new WAG: Look at Glenn's rate: He has only one question which has been accepted and has not a 100 % accept rate - so it might be the latter meaning. Of course Glenn could still change the rate:)

I looked it up and the accept rate does mean "percentage of the user's answers which have been marked as accepted". I guess the idea is that the higher the percentage, the more useful the user's answers have been in general.

This is now fixed!

Next question: So what is "award points" compared to upvoting - a return of the original SQLA's bounties?

Seems to be a way to simply give someone some of your points for answering your question, similar to the old bounty thing but with fewer restrictions or rules.
