[SOLVED]New to forum, looking for a way to mark post closed?

Recommended Posts

lostbit

I looked through some of the forum docs, I was looking for the answered tool. Use this to

mark a post as answered. Doing so may stop some from reading and responding to a

post that is resolved.

Why would you stop someone from reading? Or even responding? There are almost always multiple solutions. And discussion is generally very good way to learn something new.

First, A closed issue can be sourced for FAQ (auto tools).

Sencond, If I get an answer and make progress I may not even see other

folks responding. Why not save them the time of responding.

Actually I totally agree with lostbit. It's helpful to know that a SPECIFIC problem has been resolved with a SPECIFIC answer. Some of the largest forums on the web have this feature, so that someone can chase a problem and find an answer without duplication of posts, or having to search threads which end with no resolution or practical information.

There's really no need to mock the idea - it's a perfectly valid and useful idea.

EDIT: It's also not the same as using the search tool. You can search for any amount of topics - but you can't know they have resolved an issue without reading through them all.

No, Brett's point of the search feature is that this has been discussed before.

The unofficial convention here has been to edit your post (which those other boards may not allow you to do, but this one does) and append "[solved]" to the title or subtitle of the topic. That plus a post from the OP acknowledging the solution (if there were multiple possible suggestions in the topic) make it clear that it was solved and how.

:D

You can understand what he means by the request.... just a button to automatically mark it as solved or something. But if there is SOME way to do it then that's all fair enough. As long as there is a way, it's all good.

Now... I demand to be spanked for me outburst! :D
