Help desk fraud?

I’ve seen a number of topics on the forums where the user replies to their own post and claims to have “figured it out”. Then I notice the green checkmark at the bottom of their post. Is it possible for someone to claim enough “solutions” that they earn a help desk badge or two? Is there a way to prevent users from making this claim?

I’m just testing to see if I can give myself brownie points. Go me!

There are some instances that may be valid because they are good answers. If you spot any that are not in that category you should flag them as “something else”, leave a message in the flag explaining the issue and a moderator will have a look.
