Can a thread starter close the thread?


I was just wondering, can a person who starts a thread close it when (s)he has found an answer to h(er)is query?

Only a moderator and or the site admin can close threads. We tend not to close threads after resolution as others might be able to contribute or give more information regarding the subject even after an actual resolution to the first question/problem.

Regards.
