Hello Ranchers,

When I press the buton Resolved for a post, it would be ideal that nobody can add commentaires to that post.

The button Resolved would be disabled for the persons who aren't initial poster.

Thank you!

I like the idea that conversation can continue.   There might be more interesting stuff to be said on that topic.

I'd disagree. There can be useful post-resolution conversation.

[Edit: Paul beat me to it.]

This one I might agree with: original poster and staff, that is.

Paul is correct. Sometimes people come along years later and find something useful to add to a discussion.
Sometimes the OP marks a thre‍ad resolved when there are still points in it which merit more discussion.
We rarely close discussions.

Dana,
What's the problem you are trying to solve by limiting replies?

I don't have a problem by limiting replies.

It was a suggestion.

But you can limits who can press the button Resolved because anybody can press this button now.

It is happened that I wrote a post and someone I press the button Resolved, but I am not happy with your response.

Dana,
And that's ok. The mods don't stop reading posts just because it says resolved. So you can post a reply explaining what you are looking for clarification on.

The key is that this is a discussion site. Discussion doesn't abruptly end. The "resolved" button exists so when people search, they can see if a thread is likely to have an answer. Or at least most of an answer!

Moreover, if any of moderators will observe and identify you are not happy with an answer, they will give topic a different status, which means "open for further discussions".
As been suggested earlier, concentrate on your answers and leave the moderating part for moderators. There are quite few of them and they hardly let go something unresolved or unnoticed.

Thanks for suggestion anyway. JForum software evolves on daily basis, so 'any' suggestions help are welcome, from time to time we absorb good ones if  they don't exist yet.
As I've mentioned, what you have suggested already exists.

Shall we mark this topic for you as resolved?
