I opened this topic already about half a year ago.
I'd like to see a new module on this forum. Possibility to mark threads solved. This time there would be some changes:
-only thread starters and moderators, trusted penguins, and our trusted ghost would be able to mark a thread solved
-if thread starter wouldn't be happy with the answers, would have an option to mark a thread unsolved again.
I know this would bring up a problem - community would need more moderators. But, I think that would be very helpful to all users, who would search for their problems, or to people who would like to help solving a problem.
I hope you understand my topic.
BTW: I think I failed the forum. Should that be into a suggestions forum? If so, please move this thread.

I f I can voice a personal opinion on this I think that whatever about implementing this, it would be very difficult to see this working across the board. At the time of posting this we have 92,805 threads. It would really only be feasible to do this going forward.

If I remember correctly the main concern last time was that this would throw up some problems with search engines finding the word solved repeated many times. Sorry to be vague but I can't remember the details exactly.
Anyway has a way around this issue been found because if not I can't see why the answer would be any different this time round

Regardless of what happens, I think it is a good idea.I praise Webmin and PuTTy!

DaniWeb is a Software Programming Forum. if a programming problem is solved, solution will work in every machine. there could be different approaches to solve same problem though but the solution provided, will work.
we have altogether different scenario in LinuxForums.
e.g. if we solve an Installation Problem for a particular machine, its not sure that solution will work in other machines too. thread is Solved for a thread starter only or a few users having exactly same specs. for others, its still unsolved.

I agree with Casper ... What works for one won't always work for another. Thinking that something is either solved / unsolved is too binary for me, so I voted 'No'.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

If someone else still experiences problems (because of a different setup) then they should start their own thread with their specific details.

in that case, another question arises. should we Lock solved threads?
how would we stop users to post in threads marked as Solved?
wouldn't this make things more complicated for Mods and TPs?
