Question How to close a Thread


When I am satisfied with the results of a thread, can I close it? How?

Thanks.

Not all forums have the status field. Am I missing something in my profile?

No, the staus thing was tried out in the Website Questions and Suggestions forum but failed to ctach on. As a result, it was discontinued.

It was a nice feature letting the poster close the thread. I am sorry it went away.

Thank you for your reply.

No probs. The problem with it is that many many posters don't post back to say "it worked, thanks" which means that they are equally unlikely to set the thread to 'Answered'. It is a great idea, but it's only workable if we all use it.

For examples, browse the boards - it's impossible to tell if a solution worked, or if the poster just got fed up and went back to Windows, or if they just reinstalled and didn't get the problem again. Ah well.
