Guide - How to ask Questions#98
Reminder that the Q&A Forums are apart of the Team Fortress 2 Category. All Questions must be related to TF2 or RGL.
In the Q&A forums, you are able to ask questions and have others help you by giving you the answer. But these forums come with additional features to help with that. You are able to turn your threads into a Q&A thread, which adds SOLVED and UNSOLVED to the title of the thread, which will help inform people if you still need help.
You can turn any of your threads into a Q&A thread by clicking the drop down menu when you go to submit your thread. Make sure it has a check mark or it wont submit as a Q&A thread.
Another way you can turn any of your threads into a Q&A thread by going into your thread, and clicking on Topic Tools. This will open a drop down box that you can then click on Ask a Question. This will add functionality to your thread adding the prefixes for Solved and Unsolved.
Once someone answers your question, you can then mark that post as the answer, by clicking on the post dropdown menu, and selecting Mark as correct Answer. This will copy the post to the top of the thread, and change the thread prefix from unsolved to solved.
Additionally, you can mark a thread as solved without selecting a post as an answer. by going back to the topic tools, you can select mark as solved, which will change the thread to solved without a specific answer.
If you make a mistake or someone else provides a better answer, you can revert the thread back to unsolved by going back to the topic tools, and click mark unsolved. this will removed the pinned answer and allow you select a different answer.
