Is it good practice to attach [SOLVED] to a solved question's title? I know this helps a lot when searching forums, but in a SO environment there is a visual clue for solved questions.
16Please never do this and if you see it, remove it.– Oli ModOct 4, 2013 at 17:56
5But don't remove just that! Check for other improvements that could be done to the post ;)– BraiamOct 4, 2013 at 18:25
I always do, but thanks for pointing it out. ;) Anyway, is there a default resolution/convention I can link to when commenting to the OP about the reason for the edit?– Waldir LeoncioOct 4, 2013 at 18:40
3Using the title for indicating a property of the question is semantically incorrect. Just sayin'...– Nathan OsmanOct 4, 2013 at 19:24
1It's just a question.. why the downvotes?– Salman von AbbasJan 27, 2014 at 9:54
@NathanOsman, could you help me rephrase the question, then?– Waldir LeoncioJan 27, 2014 at 11:19
@SalmanPK, beats me. :-/– Waldir LeoncioJan 27, 2014 at 11:20
Marking an answer as accepted is the signal that the question is solved. We are not a forum, and there are mechanisms to look for questions that have answers and are accepted answers:
answers:3questions that have 3 or more answers.
answers:0questions that have no answers.
isaccepted:yesanswers marked as accepted.
hasaccepted:noquestions that don't have accepted answers.
If someone's answer solved your question, mark it as accepted or upvote it. Please, don't edit questions to add
[SOLVED] to the title. If you see a question that has the answer embedded in the question, either comment to the author that he could answer his own question, or edit the question and add the answer yourself.
