I think this would be something a Mod would have to set. And then they could choose the best answer which then gets highlighted or linked to in the original post. I think that would remove any sort of abuse of the feature.
Sounds like a good idea to me. I don't think the thread needs to be closed though when it gets solved. There could be two answers to the same problem, which could get introduced at a later date.
The feature will be useful for troubleshooting so it would be limited to forums like the Hardware Hangout or Windows Discussion & Support. I don't think people would abuse it but if it does become an issue, it can easily be limited to moderators. Of course, that's assuming we let members have the ability to do it in the first place (which I have no issues with).
Please note that nothing has been decided yet other than the possibility of upgrading to IPB 3.4.2 when it's released. I'm merely a supervisor so I don't really know the inner-workings of Neowin as well as the admins and developers.
