# Why does my best answer percentage keep decreasing?

People are not awarding "best answer". So, the more questions you answer, the lower your percentage will go.

You are giving trash answers.

My BA% went up over the years from 11-13%.

Because I give good answers. You have answered more Questions and were hardly at all the best one.

The more questions you answer w/o being selected BA, the lower your BA % goes because it's a formula that divides how many BAs you received by how many total questions you've answered.

Example:

4 Questions answered and 2 BAs = 50% BA rating

50 Questions answered and 2 BAs = 4% BA rating

The more questions you answer, the more BAs you need to keep your % up.

Maybe you don't understand what the word percentage means. It is not the total of your best answers. Unless you are receiving best answer regularly and keep on posting your percentage will drop. Ask someone to explain it to you face-to-face.

the Amount of Questions that your Answering is not Meeting the Current Best Answer Percentage so its going down

It will go back up when people start picking your Answers as the Best Answer and when it match's the Current Volume of the amount of Questions that you been Answering

• Do the math it is only common sense. More answers without the best answer will decrease your percentage. You will learn more about this once you are in the 6th grade.

Perhaps you are asking too many questions, and not giving enough answers.

Percentage increases when someone awards your answer as best answer.

If you are answering questions but people don't award your answers it decreases.
