Today, I succesfully solved my problem with the help of a fellow LQ member. After I solved it, I modified the topic of the 1st post for it to read "[solved] threadname". To my surprise this did not reflect on the index of topics.
Don't you think it would be better if an indication that the trouble is solved could be added to the index? It would certainly save a lot of time of those that only come here to answer questions, and it would help users to see where they can find solved solutions to their problems. For a tech-support forum like this one this would hit the nail on the head.
Hope to see the button
