Topic: Can we distinguish between resolved and un-resolved posts?
I'm a relatively recent Ruby convert and I'm struggling with my first major project. It's hard moving from a language where everyone comes to me for help to moving to a language where I'm the one asking questions. I've bought, and been studying, some excellent books: 'Beginning Ruby', 'Ruby on Rails', 'Advanced Rails Recipes' but I've been stuck on a particular problem for the past week.
I've posted my problem twice now in the 'Controllers and Views' forum but I still can't resolve my question. Don't get me wrong: in both cases I've been grateful to receive replies, but they haven't yet helped me solve the problem.
My suggestion is this: could a feature be added that allows you to indicate that your concern has been closed? This way it would be open if a post is still open. Or failing this, could a feature that allows you to quickly re-post a concern be added?
I have posted my concern twice now because it seems that people assume that if a post has been replied to then it's been resolved, so they stop contributing.
Please don't take this as criticism of what is an excellent forum: I'm just wondering if it can be made even better!
