    Don't understand that "[t]he person who posted the problem is the ultimate judge" bit.

    I posted a solution a while ago. The OP was happy and said so. The problem is solved. I saw some time later someone else, say X, had posted a crisp, effective solution. I had to chase after the OP to urge him to use X's effective solution. A Solved flag would probably stopped X to consider the OP's problem at all.

    The "they [OP's] try the various solutions provded and either they work or they don't" bit also amazes me. This confounds the trouble in implementing a working solution and a solution which is bound not to work for intrinsic reasons.

    What about an opposite approach; instead of declaring "Solved" having the possibility to declare: "I am not satisfied yet".

    This would not prevent anybody to try better solutions for any question even if the author seems to be satisfied. But it would bring focus on problems that did not meet satisfactory solution according to the person who posted them.

    Any new reply to the post will turn off the indicator.

    Hi All.
    The Reason I suggest about "solved" is I wanted an indicator of the topic as a respondent.
    "Solved" is just my opinion and just indicate of it's advance situation.
    The poster indicate to other person when the poster feel "My Problem was solved".
    Of course, if there is another better method even if after the solution, anyone must be able to write in the topic by addition.
    And I do understand what Aladin wanted to say.
    All I wanted to say is, some indicator ("Solved" or "Not Solved") make us easy to choice of the topic.
    I think my English is unclear but do I make myself clear?
    Almost I agree with eliW.
    Regards,

    Colo
