The link in the bottom corner of the post that says "Mark this thread as solved" should be something of a clue.

Thank you, I doubt that I would of discovered that, it is not in a place where I would look for it.
I kept looking for some button like the REPLY buttons all over the place.

I had to log in before it would show up, until you log in there is NOTHING in that corner (except an advertisement).
Also it only shows up on the ORIGINAL post at the top. Unless you go back to re-read your original post, you are never going to see it.

I suggest a nice large button, right next the the REPLY button.
And another at the bottom, for the original poster, where the attention is focused. Judging by the number of posts that do not get marked solved, I suspect many other people cannot discover that line either.

Of course, ten minutes after I posted I discovered SOLVED at the bottom of the THREAD menu, but only if you are looking at one of your own posts.
If you look at some other post, and think you have seen all of that pull down menu you would not go looking back there later.
