Forum Policy - using [Solved] in thread titles


Dear All,
I have to say, I really like the policy or system (depending on hat you want
to call it) at the gentoo forums, to put "[solved]" at the begginning of the threads
that have been solved (i.e. the thread starter would edit his own original title).

I think this greatly helps when searching through the forum, because you can
immediately see which threads to enter and look at (which are relevant).

What do you think?

Thanks,
Riddick

This has been asked and discussed several times in this forum and is highly unlikely to be implemented, if you read the previous threads you'll see why.

alright, thanks - I might as well do it in my own threads,
or will that just be annoying?

You will not be able to edit your thread title to do it.

many people advocate putting the word SOLVED at the very top of your first post in your thread when your problem is fixed-

this is unobtrusive, and the people who want to see it can see it.
