I’ve noticed that certain topics in #development-discussion have solutions marked, which doesn’t click to me. Aren’t discussions… discussions? Meaning each discussion wouldn’t have a right/wrong answer? You are just discussing a particular topic based on your own opinion and experience.
I feel that whenever a discussion has a solution marked, the discussion starts to slowly die because there’s a solution, there’s an answer and there isn’t any need to engage ourselves in the discussion any longer. #help-and-feedback does need the solution as it identifies which reply is actually working and/or correct.
To fix this, assuming the devforum is using this plugin, all the devforum would need to do under #development-discussion is to go to settings > uncheck the “Allow topic owner and staff to mark a reply as a solution” as seen below:

I feel that if there is a solution marked, then it shows that this topic is not a discussion, it’s a question/answer situation which I believe needs to change.
