Let's say someone has a problem with his software, hardware.. or anything mostly.. and created a topic about this.

If it is solved, why not add for example [SOLVED] after the topic subject?
Forexample let's say i had a problem with something and somebody helped me solve it. I contact the admind to add [SOLVED] after the topic name.

In that way, if anyone has the same problem he could rely on that topic

Could it be set as a button shown to the topic creator so that he sets it as solved ? But does not close the topic ?

I have serious doubts about whether members will bother to use it. Just look at the "best answer" feature. Also, why aren't complaint posters locking a their threads when the bug is fixed?

the best answer may be a good explanation but not a good solution. it depends on the type of topic.. wiza here is just suggesting something which is good but leads to more work from your part, which i guess is kinda neglected, since few members really give there utmost in doing these small things.

Regarding the the complaint posters, we always left it to the admins when it was solved or fixed, since the admin (you)usually posted 'bug find acknoweldged"  and then topic closed.. it was a sort of unwritten way how things were carried out, it olse helped you in finding whthere things were solved or not.

I would leave it to the original complainer to have the last word and confirm whether it was fixed satisfactorily, or say "thank you".

Anyway, I am not saying this is a bad idea, but sharing my frustration about members not caring to do such a simple action to show their appreciation.

I will add this suggestion to the upgrades list for when the forums are re-written in ASP.Net (instead of classic ASP). I have other upgrades in mind which are meant to encourage people to be helpful to others, but they won't work unless people who get their problems solved do that little extra effort to show their gratitude.

P.S. @play, I haven't forgotten about your achievements bug report. It's just that I have something cooking that should address that problem and I didn't feel on spending time on a section that is on its way out.
