    Welcome to the Lounge.

    It's true that not all "give credit where credit is due" or a "thank you" or give some feedback on the replies, but it is encouraged to do so, see Rule 7, Post a single "thank you" for help received. That's an excellent opportunity to give some feedback, sometimes there are several suggested solutions. As I said in some post/thread in the link below: Since the Lounge has been around for a long time, there is a lot of knowledge gathered here. Part of that knowledge is due to the feedback that is received when someone has solved a problem.

    For some earlier posts on this topic, see this thread: [topic='769106']Thank You section; followup section[/topic].

    This is absolutely a good idea. We've put it on our *long* to-do list.

    A very warm Welcome to the Lounge. !!

    It's nice to see someone's first post be one regarding gratitude for help recieved, even before they have asked a question or received any help.

    For whatever it's worth Tony, here's a clip from a forum site I occasionally participate in where the OP can mark a thread "solved." This one happens to run on something called vBulletin which I know nothing about.
