Best answer count is not in profile anymore. Answered


It looks like the count of best answers is not in the profile anymore.  Is the a bug or permanent?

It shows a percentage of best answers, but don't additional replies made in the answers forum count as an answer even though you have already submitted an answer? If so, you can effectively be giving 5 or 10 "answers" to a single question, especially when we get caught up in off topic stuff.

Yes you are right on that. It's counting all of you answers and explanations to the followup questions.

Also don't forget all the questions that get sufficiently answered, but don't get marked as such by the author. There are some great answers out there that seem to fall by the wayside.

Maybe a reminder to the authors to mark them as answered if they get a satisfactory response from the community on the ask a question page?

Sounds like a good idea to me.

What about a way to differentaite between an actual answer, an additional clarifying question and a general comment?

More buttons in the "your answer" box perhaps? Or maybe "answer question" beside the "add comment" at the top of the page?
