It's a great work pal. Really valued for our community. I've already mark some thread SOLVED at the moment.
At the same time I would like to make a one suggestion. I think your plug-in can do this. When a user mark the thread is solved, a prefix [SOLVED] is added to in front of the thread title. It's fine. How about the changing the thread icon. What ever user is added there, it's better to change a default icon after marking the thread solved. As an example for a check mark. In such instance other users can easily identify the thread is solved or not rather looking into text.
I don't know what the others thought on it, but I'm waiting for there suggestions as well.
Eranga, that is a good suggestion but the plugin does not have such a feature. You might try posting a feedback to the following plugin web page. May be later we can have that feature in this way.

Actually my English is not much good. But I think this make sense. If you think it is not, do whatever modification you want.
Mark threads ‘solved’ Version: 1.0.3
Nice plug-in actually. But I would like to make a suggestion there. When a user of a forum clicks the Mark Thread Solved link, the prefix [SOLVED] is added to the thread title. But the user added icon is not changed.
How about changing the icon to a default one a check mark is the best icon which I can suggest. Why I say this is rather looking the text, people can easily notify images, colors etc.
And also it won’t be an issue, because after certain time people deal with the forum, they get familiar not to use the check mark icon. Because they know that if he/she used it the possibility to get answered there question is very low.
So, what you think of it.
It looks like i gave the wrong link previously. This is the correct link and i posted your reply.
Mark Threads As 'Solved' - vBulletin.org Forum
It looks like the modification is no longer supported but if someone decides to improve it, i guess they will consider what we have said. Thanks for the message, Eranga.

Anyway thanks for the posting. We'll see what are the comments on it. As your title of the post said, it's a possible improvement and also most valuable improvement.
Have to wait and see :)

Brilliant. I think you should make some kind of sticky thread in each forum letting people know that they need to mark their threads as 'Solved' once a solution has been found. People need to get in the habit of doing this as soon as possible!Did this post help you? Please me! :cool:

I can add it to the forum rules as a suggestion. DonCash, can you check the rules and tell me the text for the new rule?
I dont like stickies much because i dont like forums with lots of stickies. In some forums, they limit readability of the forums a lot. So i behave very carefully before deciding to add a sticky.

Hey, yeah that won't be a problem. Ill write something for you now and report back ASAP.
I personally think you should try to implement this as much as possible. Make it a required forum rule more than a suggestion. It really will help people to know when a thread still needs attention and also helps people browsing to solve similar issues.
I'm sure you'll see the benefits of this much more as these forums grow larger :)Did this post help you? Please me! :cool:

- 03-31-2008, 05:05 PM #36I enabled it only on the forums where a java question can be asked. For example i did not enable it on "Forum Lobby" or "Java Tutorials" to prevent misuse of the feature on these forums. Let me know if i mistakenly set it for a forum.
Ok. We can do that (please form it as a strict rule) but i still dont believe it will be used by newbies appropriately. Because as we talked earlier, most of the new registered users visit the forum once. They dont think to be part of the community and they just look for a solution to their problem.
Java Tip - I'm just about to PM you.Did this post help you? Please me! :cool:

I wrote this brief announcement in the Announcements sub-forum. However, due to the nature of that sub-forum, a lot of members overlooking it and what not, it's likely not been seen by most members. I considered making it a sticky but if you have other suggestions, like making it a rule in the FAQ section, if I don't get to it, you're welcome to beat me to it. ;)

I agreed with you Captain, I think we can add a thread explaining about rules and FAQ in each sub-forum in our community. It should be the first thread all the time, even people answered to other threads. But I'm not sure our community plug-ins support it. Since we have few number of Moderators it wont be difficult at all.
