Mark threads as answered


This topic has come up quite a bit and I am now beta testing this in the Website Questions & Suggestions forum. You will notice that the ratings column has been replaced with one that says Status. The threads are all marked as either A (answered) or U (unanswered). Only the person who started the thread can change the status. Please let me know what you think of the feature (and the implementation). If we decide to keep this you would also be able to search for unanswered threads. As always feedback is welcome!

Cool, thanks. If the users later decides that it's "no longer answered" can they then, un-answer that thread?

Cool

Not currently, but if we keep the feature it could easily be added.

And do you want to add a timeout function to remind posters they still have an unanswered thread here?
