Question Suggestion: Posts Solved - Not Solved but ....


Just wondering if there could be other choices for: Solved Posts

Along with: Solved maybe add: Not Resolved but no more help needed.

What do you think?

This thread would be better off in LQ Suggestions and Feedback - I've reported it to be moved there.

In what sort of case would you imagine people using this?

Or "Solved but looking for more alternatives"

I'd be curious about this as well. The main benefit of allowing a member to mark a thread as solved is that it serves to let other members know a solution has been reached and to allow members to search only for threads that have reached resolution (or exclude them, based on what they are trying to accomplish). What benefit do you see to having an intermediate option?

"Workaround found" might be useful.

?
What was the solution? Answering Jeremy's question would go a long way to "solving" this thread. To that end, a label indicating the problem has a successful work-around, but not a resolution, might be useful for those searching for solutions, but would need to be unambiguous so as not to be confused with containing a/the solution.
Does that make sense?

Hi

Yes like the OP I can think there are some alternatives that might offer better transparency.
CAPITALS is my puny attempt to show possible new entrants?

SOLVED often is used by members to search for an error they have and looking for the solution

WORK-A-ROUND or quick fix, is not a permanent solution. I can think of a good example with my router which currently has the latest firmware but borks unless I have a certain setting
eg http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum...t=2006802&p=13 ----reply 3

PLEASE IGNORE ---OP asked a question, not given a correct solution but has moved on to a different distro, so SOLVED is wrong
no WORK-A-ROUND etc

---some times in real life, we could say the OP has lost interest. And OP wants readers not to waste any more time on it.
