Hi,

Is it possible to have a feature where only the person who started the post can mark it resolved? I think it'd help out a lot in deterring possible mis-posts on any of the topics here. I saw this on the Flash Kit forums (I'm a member of Flash Kit, BTW) and I started thinking it would be a good idea for these forums.

Go to http://www.flashkit.com/board/forumd...c8f7&forumid=2 to see what I mean

Would this be a helpful feature?

The Wrox P2P forum is not a help desk, it's a discussion forum. How can a discussion be resolved?

Furthermore, just because someone got the answer they were looking for, why should discussion cease on the subject?

Bruce,

I'm just saying that when a topic is done, it could be marked resolved so that people would know that it's done with. I guess I was a bit unclear the last time around. Anyways, I'm talking about marking a topic resolved when discussion
on a particular topic stops. Get what I'm saying now?

Ben, are you asking for a way to click on a single reply to make it say "Accepted Answer"?

Jeff,

Yeah. That's part of it. I'm also saying that there could be a way for us to let other people know when the topic is finished.

You mean like making the topic title in green or something if it's resolved?

Also forgot to say that there could be a "Resolved" message next to the resolved topic

To reiterate Bruce's point:- who is to say when a discussion is resolved? Even if you, as the original poster, are done with the discussion -you got your answer, made your point or whatever - why would you assume that no-one else would like to add something. Are you looking for a way to always have the last word? ;)

I don't think that Ben meant that resolving the topic would prohibit other people from posting. I think he just wants to let people know the original problem is solved. I don't see a lot of convenience in having this, personally.
