Close a thread
as I am the group owner of the windows group, I’m moderator (I think moderator? not admin) of the Desktop forum. Is it possible for me to close a discussion or can that only be done by admins? If that can only be done by admin, how about language forums, where perhaps no admin is in as non of the admins speaks the language?
:-)The last one is missing for me, so I hope, Marius reads this tomorrow and answers
So you are missing the “Set post status to closed” option when you click edit on the thread starter post?
There are three levels of access on the forum, normal – moderator and admin. Yours and chetankjains moderation options should be the same, in theory at least :)
That’s what I see when I click on edit on the first entry of http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/2496 [developer.qt.nokia.com]:
Ok, so for language forums, we need to contact admins (that might not be in the group forum) to close a thread, right?
Correct. We will add some guidelines on when closing a thread is the right thing to do. Please also see this thread for some background: http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/2272
