I don't know if anything like that is even possible. We didn't design the software that we use for this forum (look at the very bottom and you will see: "Powered by vBulletin® Version 3.8.7").Instead, I was thinking that this issue could be solved (pardon the pun) programatically with a question ("Problem solved?") in a pop-up dialogue box (rather than a checkbox on the Post Reply form - which relies on the user seeing & going to it) presented to the OP when they submit any subsequent post to that thread. If they answer Yes then SOLVED could be added to the thread subject line. As this would force the OP to respond, I would expect a much higher strike rate with this method than anything else, and little - if any - downside.
Just like any other pre-packaged software, you cannot make it do anything you want, you are limited to the options it allows you to do. So while some people come up with a lot of ideas that sound really good, sometimes they just aren't possible or feasible.
