  1. Best answer
    You must start the thread at a question thread before best answer is available. If you choose discussion or poll,then there will be no best answer.

    Go back to your thread and edit your first post. Then change the thread from discussion or poll to question. They are tabs on the top of the area where you edit your post.
  2. I have same problem and followed Pyree's advice.

    I logged in and clicked on the edit button for my first post in the thread.

    The post edit screen came up but when I clicked on the 'Question' tab and clicked on 'submit' I got the message "you are not allowed to edit this post"

    Is there a time limit which restricts editing of old posts? It's only been a week.

    It might only be Mods and Admin who change thread types once they have been submitted, which thread did you want changed?

    Cheers!

    I have now selected the best answer on that thread. Does this close the thread (or, if not, how do I tag it as 'solved')?
  7. Closing of the thread is done by moderator. But for most thread, when the user saw that the problem was resolved, the just stop replying and the thread sink to the bottom.

    Hi,

    I know this is old, but i didn't want to open up a new thread. I asked this question:

    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-1644828/3820-overclock-ram.html#10619208

    But i cant choose best answer, coul you please turn it into a question?

    Thanks!
  10. Done! For future reference, you can do this yourself by clicking the Full Edit button (the pencil in the lower right corner without the trail behind it) on the first post in the thread, checking the "Request solutions to this Question (not a discussion)" box and saving the post.

  18. Looks like a Question type to me. You should be able to set a Best Answer.
  19. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1723202/computer-build.html It also says that there is no changes made and I can't return to my original post. If you could fix it, that would be awesome.
  20. Xirailuyo - changed your thread to a Question type, per your request. :)
