This is mainly aimed at Chris but someone else could tell me if its even possible.
I see some of the moderators trying to add [solved] to post titles. Could you not create a button that is visible to the person who created the post and the moderators who can click it and will automatically insert [solved] to the topic title? Seems like it would save a lot of time.August 28, 2010 at 3:18 pm #81068virtualParticipant
I believe it is the original poster who adds this to the title, not the mods.August 28, 2010 at 5:41 pm #81056TheDocModerator
Sometimes users add it, sometimes mods add it.
I agree with you that having a button would be amazing – but we will still run into the same problem of people not using the button! I’ve thought about it for a while now, it would be an excellent feature. Now that we’ve moved over to Vanilla, perhaps we’ll look into it!
For a lot of us, it’s a quick way to see if the question has been answered. Time is precious! There’s also something rather gratifying about seeing a bunch of [Solved]’s on the forum!August 28, 2010 at 6:14 pm #81038thisishardMember
Yeah, with this new forum bit all your own posts are blue and when you hover over them an options button comes up so there could be another button next to it for example. That would be much easier. Its also satisfying seeing your own post as solved :)August 29, 2010 at 12:15 am #81018Chris CoyierKeymaster
I really like the [solved] thing. That’s been in use around here for a long time and it’s very helpful. If we can mod up Vanilla to allow mods to one-click do that, we will. I have a big list of things I need to get fixed and add around here and that’ll be on it.October 28, 2010 at 5:06 pm #79604Chris CoyierKeymaster
This should theoretically be working today, it’s not quite yet… but I’m confident we’ll get there.
