Marking a Thread Solved ?

I think there should be some kind of forum rule here that will help everyone get it in gear.

If not followed then some sort of automatic band from posting anymore until your previous postings are taken care of. It seems to me that more could be taken care of this way, or maybe after so many days (30) or so the posting should be deleted and you would be required to post again or something. Seems to me there is a lot of unanswered or posting's that lead to no where in each and every forum.:confused:

In some cases, there is only a partial solution available to the author, and so, the author of the thread chooses to keep the thread "unsolved" hoping for more definitive input.

Ergo, not all cases are forgotten by the author upon solution or when no solution exists.

Enforcing marking as solved should only be an author chosen option - I agree with John that it is totally futile to even "try" to enforce such a thing. At times I have written back in the thread and asked the author what the solution was after they solved the problem in a totally different way - mostly be re-installing the OS (as in Windows), or buying a new hard drive rather than actually solving the original problem.

Futile is as futile does!
