Helpful new feature for the forum

by jackzelouf / September 5, 2010 10:18 PM PDT

One of the features which i think would be really useful, which i can't see implemented on this forum, is a solved button.

I have seen this on a lot of forums, and basically it you had an issue which has been solved, you click solved, and then instead of reading through all the posts, users can just read the solution, which would save a lot of time.

Could this please be impmented?

In fact, I made that suggestion for Phase 2 of the forum overhaul, which should begin in the next month. No word if it will be implemented, but it would certainly be a welcomed addition.

This is something that we will be implementing...

After the backend phase of moving to our new forum platform we will be working on new forum feature sets and this is one feature that will be implemented.

This feature will allow the author of the question to select which answer by our members helped them out most in solving their issue. While we will only are allowing the author of the question to select which one answer was best, in addition we will also be implementing a helpfulness rating on all answers provided, so that any member can vote on the answers they thought were helpful leading up to the solution.

Thanks for the suggestion, I personally can't wait for this feature to get implemented, it's been long over due.

Hi Lee,

When will this feature be implemented, or has it already?

That feature is planned for Phase II of the forum overhaul, which is currently in progress. An exact date has not been set yet, though I believe they're shooting for releasing the new functionality this quarter. If all goes according to plan, that means we should see it appear sometime before the snow melts.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
