close own threads?


i dunno if this has been suggested before, but perhaps it would be possible to give members the permission to close their own threads when it has been resolved?

As this is a forum and another member is free to add their own issue if it is pertinent to the OP's issue (as in, I have the same problem, followed the steps and it's still not fixed) how do we define "resolved"? If you post a problem, solve it for you and close the thread, I would have to open my own thread with an identical start point and would have to suffer "why not search as this was answered yesterday" responses.

A really useful thing would be for those who open a thread on an issue to edit their original posts and change the title to:
<original title> [SOLVED]
That would make it easy for others searching the forum to identify useful threads.

Then a person using Search would have no way of looking for thread on modems or anything besides else for a title.
