    Success Indicator

    Eileen,

    I have a suggestion:

    How about an icon and some text displayed on the root post for a thread that the originator can activate if the question is answered to his/her satisfaction?

    That might be very helpful for a person searching a topic -- display only the posts or threads that resulted in success.

    Re: Success Indicator

    I thought there was a thread about this a while back - would editing the title of the thread work?
    Original Posters, Moderators and even higher celestial beings could then mark the thread complete as I've just done with one of mine. Any use?

    Re: Success Indicator

    A simple click and confirmation would be MUCH nicer. Most poeple aren't going to take the time to edit a post title. Furthermore, I've tried that before only to be stopped with a message indicating the post cannot be changed (??)

    Never saw the previous thread -- good idea back then too.

    Re: Success Indicator

    That's my icon for having the problem solved; visually it says "I am now enlightened" . (The Dalai Lama just visited us here in Salt Lake City, what can I say?)

    Ok, I get it.

    Will we have to change it if Zhu Rongji visits Salt Lake City? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Success Indicator

    OOOOOhhhh,

    Johnny ids a berry bad boy!

    (I suppose that would equate to "success" from his highness's point of view)

    You are easily swayed, though, I can see.

    I can think of nothing right now.

    Re: Success Indicator

    Brooke, that proposal was just so the poster of the solution would know the solution was the correct one, without having to open the email notification.

    Ah. Thank you. I did look for it but I don't seem to get on with search engines. More practice required.

    But wouldn't Buddah have suggested that to find enlightenment, we must give up Attachments? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
