    Red face [SOLVED] Mark as SOLVED? Give THANKS?

    How do I mark a thread as "SOLVED"? Where is the button? or what must I do?

    AND

    How do I thank a person? Where is the button?

    Two very simple questions. I'm sure it makes me look new. But I am new. And I have now been searching for the answers for a long time. I believe it should be in the FAQs for the forum. But maybe it's not asked frequently enough.

    There used to be a SOLVED button... but it broke

    Simply add [SOLVED] to the title of your thread.

    Don't know about thanks... you could pm them i guess.

    As for saying thanks, just make a post on the same thread thanking the contributors.

    But I just recently read about a "thanks icon". ( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...59#post4306459 - LaRoza). Is that no longer in existence? or..?

    The thanks and solved options were disabled as they caused issues with the forums.

    +1

    Both of the thanks and mark as solved fetures have been disabled.

    Sticky: Where are the "Thank you" and "solved" features?

    Oh. Hmmm... Interesting. Well, that answers the questions and makes my poll look stupid! But I see someone added another option to the poll. Can I change my vote? Hahaha...

    I guess this is solved.

    Thanks to you all! *clicks nonexistent "Thanks!" button*
