In order to make some topic types work a little more smoothly, we’ve turned on the Solution functionality for threads in these categories:
- General Discussion
- Ideas & Feature Requests
- Forum Bugs & Feedback
If you’ve started a topic in one of these categories, you can now mark a reply in your thread as a solution and automatically close the thread. This will additionally attach the solution to the top of the thread so that it’s easier for anyone else to read in the future.
Moderators can also mark replies in any applicable thread as a solution. This is similar to Solved & Answered, which is still a useful category and moving to it should probably still be part of the moderator process. Regretfully I haven’t been able to find a way to automate this part quite yet.
