Forum Feedback: Locked and Solved Threads

Hi,

Notice in advance: When I report any feedback about the forum, I make sure that I use Google Chrome(supported browser) and check the issue there.

I shortly read the comment of RudiC that the Thread turns light blue, when it is solved. I never realized that this is the visible sign of a solved thread. It seems not very intuitive to me. I would appreciate if there's a more easy understandable mark. Maybe a changed icon for the thread (hook-icon?) in the thread list.

The same for locked threads. They are not displayed visually at all. Maybe a lock-icon in the thread list helps to recognize closed threads.

Thanks for considering.

Regards,
stomp

EDIT

I realize a lock icon came later now on a now locked thread. Maybe it was a caching issue. So please ignore feedback #2.

Good idea.

I'll put this on the TODO list to add to the new cp tables when I'm done with the prototype, during the beta testing phase.

Thanks.

New Feature: Tagging Threads as "Solved"
Neo
We just added a new feature. When tagging a thread, if you tag the thread "solved" the title of the thread will show up as blue (#0000FF) in various places (forum view, top stats, etc.) So, if you want to show your thread as "solved" simply add a "solved" tag to the thread taglist. ......

GNU

The development of the GNU operating system began in 1983 by Richard Stallman. At the time, Richard worked at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and publicly announced the GNU Project on September 27, 1983 on the net.unix-wizards and net.usoft USENET newsgroups. GNU software development formally started on January 5, 1984. The goal of GNU was to bring a totally free software operating system into the world. Richard has a vision that computer users should be free to study the source code of the computer software, share software with others, modify the software, and publish modified versions.
The GNU open source idea was published as the GNU Manifesto in March 1985. GNU was designed from the start to be unix-compatible and so GNU development used C and Lisp as the GNU system programming languages. Most of GNU was been written by volunteers with the exception of numerous adopted third-party components. Richard Stallman set up the Free Software Foundation (FSF) in October 1985 Then in the late 1980s and 1990s the FSF hired software developers to write GNU software. As GNU gained in popularity various businesses began contributing to GNU development or selling GNU software and support, including Cygnus Solutions which eventually became a part of Red Hat.
