Should 'SOLVED' threads appear in zero-reply threads?
I was wondering whether SOLVED threads should appear on the "Zero-reply threads" page. As far as I can see, marking your thread as 'SOLVED' is so that other people with similar problems know that your thread contains a solution, and the 'zero-reply threads' page is used by members to find threads that need answering. If this is the case, then it doesn't seem to make much sense in displaying threads which are both, as they are advertising a thread containing a solution in the place where people look for unsolved problems.
Admittedly, this is only going to happen if someone solves their own problem and doesn't double-post, but it might be worth considering.
That... was a good point well made. However, if you search for "solved zero reply" in LQ Suggestions and Feedback, there's nothing in the first 10 or so posts, after which I gave up. (There are actually relevant posts further down, I'll scroll further next time )
Is there anywhere you can see the 'similar threads' list before you post?
If you solve your own problem, why not post the answer to the problem as a followup? And if you are creating the thread with the problem already solved, why not split it into a question/problem/issue, and an answer/solution/reply? Then it would not be a zero-reply thread.
