Wrong solution?


#1

Hello, I don't know if it's ok ask this, but I just recently helped someone in one of the fourms and they marked their comment as the solution instead of mine, so I didn't want to be rude and say: "Umm... Can you maybe mark my answer as the solution instead of your comment? :confused: "
I was just wondering if maybe a moderator or someone higher can fix that? I'm sorry if I'm asking this the wrong way. Thanks in advance.

yes, this can be fixed. I will correct it. Can you post the topic it involves? If we spot this, we usually correct this.

Sure, fixed. Many users don't do this correctly, you can't expect them to.


#5

Yes, I understand. If I help someone again, should I write: "if this works you can mark it as the solution." ? Is that's an 'ok' thing to do?
Anyways, thank you so much! :smiley:


#6

no, not really. I am afraid there isn't much you can do. If one of the moderators spot it, sure, we will correct it, but alerting us to it everytime it happens will take a lot of time, so i am afraid we don't do that


#7

No, don't do that. It's soliciting and something we frown upon. If someone marks your solution, they do. If they don't, they don't. Most don't, so there is not much we can do but move on. I personally remove the checkmark when someone marks their own post, and occasionally (not often) put it on the solution if it is a really good solution that can help others who read the topic later.

@stetim94 , @mtf , Ok, Ive seen others do it (asking for solutions), so I thought it was normal. I completely understand. :slight_smile: Thanks for your patience with me.
