With Regards,
Shashi.

Thats a good Idea Shashi.....

The problem seems to me is in case of multiple correct answers.... icon_question.gif
Suppose more than one member responds correctly for a single query, as there may be more than one correct answer for the single query.

And as its a discussion Forum, time to time other members, apart from the member answered coeectly, also doing some value addition to the answers.

If Moderators can get rid of the above scenario.....marking correct answer should not be a hard stuff.

Well, Big Boss yet to come.... icon_confused.gif

Regards,

Priyesh.

I think that it should be up to the original poster to make their own decisions about the validity of the responses proposed. It seems unreasonable to me to expect a single person to spend a great deal of time reading every post and every response, and to then make the decision as to the validity of the response(s). The original poster must assume the responsibility of following-up with the responses, checking them against documentation, checking them in a controlled test environment, and tasking the responder to prove their post if necessary.

I do realize that there are many users on this forum who will just throw out any answer without providing an appropriate amount of documentation or real-world experiences to backup their response. For these cases, the original poster has the option of using one of the special "attention" buttons to notify a moderator and to send the poster a private message with whatever content the original poster feels is warranted.

The ability to tell the difference between someone who is providing valid feedback to an issue, as opposed to someone who is spouting incorrect or ill-conceived responses under the guise of being an alleged "expert" is a critical skill that all I/T professionals must possess, regardless of their level of skill or competence.
