Status: Alternative Solution

It seems that some users are trying to mark more than one post as solution, not realizing that doing so clears the first solution.

I have noticed recently on some discussions, another user's comment is marked as solution when I was first to provide the solution.

Low and behold, when I 'View' my points, I can see that my post was marked as Solution and immediately unmarked again.


When I PM these OPs, they all tell me that they have actually marked two solutions.

Please add a Warning when a user clicks on a second 'Mark as Solution' that this action will clear the previous solution?

...I've had more than my fair share of these (especially since the guy who gets the solution...not remarked...gets it with an extra line of information in it angry ), so I'll vote this up!

Interesting Marianne. I hadn't actually considered this use case. We have something in the development cycle that will address this situation--albeit differently. I'm going to check to see if we need to enhance the request. Thanks!
