Marking threads as "solved"

perhaps offtopic.. pity this forum don't have an option 'mark this thread as solved' like some others do..
# 2  
Threads are never really "solved" ... but an approach is often found.... there are always more than one solution; and so we do not mark them as "solved" and BTW, it is not a "pity" as you say, it is a forum "feature" because there is always more than one way to approach a problem in the UNIX and Linux environment.

If we thought it was so beneficial to mark threads "solved" we would have added this feature to the forums a long time ago. We do not see any great benefit for this and if other forums do it, then that is up to that site.

OK, years later after this thread was created - the now official answer is:

The only acceptable way to mark a thread "solved" is by adding the "solved" tag to the thread tags.
