The #help-and-support section of this site uses the Discourse Solved plugin for posts to be marked as solved. There has been some question about why this feature is available in some categories but not others as noted here:
For context, I believe the reason this is only enabled in certain categories is that the #help-and-support section is intended to eventually replace help.openstreetmap.org, while all the other categories are a replacement for forum.openstreetmap.org. The old forum site has no such “solution” feature, while the old help site does. Many times a forum discussion may twist and turn in various directions without a neat and clean solution, but other times a problem/solution or question/answer structure may exist. Regardless, the German community requested to have the solved feature enabled for #communities:de and we could do the same for the US category if we like. How do folks feel about this?
One thing to note about this feature is that only a topic creator is able to mark a post as the solution. Global moderators and Trust Level 4 users can also mark posts as the solution, but category moderators cannot do this (unless they are Trust Level 4).
