e.g. on my profile I have "6% correct"

I stand corrected. I took user @smiling_jack (paleohacks.com/users/3137/smiling_jack.html). He has three answers (5 up votes, 1 up vote, 10 up votes) -- none have been accepted and a 0% correct rating. I up voted his 10, that did nothing. Then I accepted his 1 and he went to 33% correct rating. -- I of course than un-accepted his answer, sorry Jack.

However, looks like you are correct.

since answerhub doesn't seem to post any information about their product, we cannot be sure.

But I do not think this is the right answer. I'm at 10%, and I highly doubt 10% of my answers were chosen. (although I guess we could test this out and go back and accept a bunch of old answers and see if it ups the percent.)

My guess is that it is a combination of accepted answers and answers with more than some amount (3) of up votes.

Would be nice if answerhub would have answers on it....

I believe it is % of your answers which were chosen as best answer.
