    No.
    Maybe it depends on the thread/problem.
    Speaking for myself (usually answering/solving pretty basic screen resolution problems),I do know when a problem is solved.

    But then the staff has the work to do (checking if thread really is solved).

    Anyway,I just thought it was a good idea.
    I can live with estimated a few hundred threads which are solved but not marked as...

    The regular button reads, "Report abuse". I would suggest that using this button to report solved threads would interfere with the abuse follow-ups, as abuse surely takes a much higher priority.

    If you do like the "Report thread solved" idea, I think it would be best to have a different button. But, as implied above, this may overwhelm the staff, especially when the button is used without careful thought. There is also the problem that newbies may confuse that button with the existing "Mark as solved".

    and we are back to time served and well known not meaning they are qualified for the privelege

    perhaps an extended privelege application process like the Ubuntu Membership process, or that privelege given to Ubuntu Members, sort of like a Mod -padawan privelege extension abuse it and lose it as it were

    As we type there are

    Threads: 1,685,237

    I'd hazard a guess that there is a very low % that are actually marked solved - imo it's not really that important a thing to be worrying about

    The unfortunate fact is that most people will just start another thread - even if the same issue is marked as solved on the same page.

    Does it gain anything - I doubt it

    It makes more consistent sense to have a single "inform mod" kind of button also.

    Well, the previous button said "Report", people would miss it. The wording has to be clear. "Mod" is a term we all know and use, "Staff" is another one, but newcomers or people from other cultures may not understand. With "Report abuse", we never had any questions
