I like to see all the threads which are solved

Hello admin/moderator

I would like to see here all the solved problems. i.e every one is posting the threads and they are getting the replies but we dont know whether the person has got the answer for his question or not, so i kindly request you to put the information on the thread or a button or symbol which will show the status of those threads.

So that every one tries to read the solved puzzles or questions.

i think every one will like this in our forums

I think the easiest way to accomplish this is to convince every user on this forum to edit their initial post and add [solved] to the thread title, once the problem is solved. If you are to do it any other way the mods would have to screen every thread to see if it is solved, which would be hard since they probably don't have the same setups and problems as the original poster in a thread, and therefore can't reproduce the fix.

This has come up many many times in the past - for example, from 2004. The issue is that a thread needs to be marked as solved by the thread starter and most of them don't even return to say "thanks, suggestion number X solved it", so why anyone would think that they'd come by to click a button.....?

If you ask the mods to do it, well that's unworkable: firstly there are far too many threads and far too few people for the job and secondly, how will anyone other than the person involved know whether a thread is solved or not? Also, after solving one problem, posters often return with follow up questions that are only slightly related, when do we count a thread as solved?
