After a Query is Solved, Should (Solved) be displayed?

Hi,
I Have been going through queries of other people. One thing I have noticed is that by the title, you cannot say wether it has been solved or yet to be solved. So i was wondering while posting a query in any of the query section, We should get a Check Box to select it as a query. And when the query gets solved (either by itself, or someone answers it) The user can select - Query Solved. And (Solved) Should be displayed in the title (if possible else somewhere else) to let other users know this has been Solved.
It'll have two advantages,
1) For Members who want to help, they'll know which queries are yet needed to be solved
2) For members looking for some answer, by seeing (Solved) They'll know they might find the answer in that thread.

Check the attachment to get the idea

Thanks a lot..

Good Idea but I really doubt how many people would actually select that when solved and if its mod that they have to do it then it would be of not much value.

Well, I agree since its something new, it'll take time for people to get use to this, but then this will add a great value to this site, since just by looking at a thread we can say it has been solved. It would improve queries being solved to a great extent.
A new idea always take time to be implemented, but once people get use to it, they do it automatically. Like the thanks button which is still catching up, but soon everyone will get use to it

As for the mods doing it, yes it may happen at the start, Specially with the newbies who join just to ask one question, but we'll have to help people and let them know there is a feature like that.

I think its worth trying...

The idea is not new but is at many forums. Check Daniweb which calls it Resolved.

I checked, and since this type of thing is not new and is implemented why don't we have it on our site?
Check this to get an idea of how (solved) tag will be easy to know if a problem has been solved.

It'll distinguish threads from solved to unsolved!

I would like this feature, because I personally hate reading so many threads which sound like answering my query but at last I discover that they are rubbish.
If something could help me which threads would be helpful and which ones will waste my time, it would be really nice.

shabbir is right that no one really cares for maintaining this feature, but that doesn't mean / it isn't a reason good enough, to dump something that would be helpful for others.

Why ?? Why no value ??
It might save 100s of minutes of googling for someone with a similar query, no matter who marks the thread as "solved" -- the mod or the member who raised the query.
And, as a mod, I won't mind maintaining threads.

Who marks it is not a problem but Mods marking it is not good option but I would try to get this thing installed in the next upgrade.

well even if its a 50:50 ratio of who marks it at the start, i think that still is a good thing, as ultimately more number of queries will get solved resulting in satisfaction of members!

Waiting for the upgrade...
thanks..
