So that not everybody needs to create a new thread to find out where the button is...

It's the little cog next to every post in a thread you started, to mark a post as the solution. It's not enabled in all subforums? Wouldn't the green checkmark displayed next to solved threads be better suited as an icon?

Inspecting the button, I see there is some CSS already defining a checkmark background-image, but it's being overridden somehow and also being obscured by a :before { content: '\f013'; ... } rule that adds the cog (it's actually text).

I got the checkmark to show by randomly disabling CSS rules, and changing '\f013' to ' '. The checkmark is grey until you hover over it, then it is green. For that to work with our current default theme, we'd need to change the background colors (default and hover) of the button as well.

What I think would fit the theme better is a green (of the same shade as the blue buttons) button with a white checkmark.

I didn't enable it everywhere since I have to do it manually for every single one. Shall I enable it for all forums?
Yes, noticed that it is a cog in the main theme. In prosilver, it is a checkmark. When I do have time I will check it out. :)

"Solved" topics do not make sense on all forums.

Right! I'll do the same for them too.
-
Note on the styling: The topic title that would normally appear (currently being hidden by some js) above every post has the checkmark also and should be modified to at least show which post is the 'Answer' post. Otherwise, there is simply the solved button to be styled correctly under the main theme.

It should also be enabled for moderators on the v2 subforum, for bugs and change requests.

I've made a test as a greasemonkey script to highlight the solved topic.

I've just tried to test the 'solved' button in 'off topic' but can't find it any more, in any board style. I was trying to test if, having turned it on, it could be turned off.

There seems to be a sprinkling of ticks in the 'ask for help' forum which don't seem to be related to whether the OPs question has been solved or not. This would indicate that it is not being used as expected, or the icon is too obscure, or some other reason. I think someone should revisit the implementation of this proposal.

It would certainly be useful in 'off topic'.

However I believe my second paragraph should be addressed too.

Edit:- Also whether the solved tick can be turned off? (I was unable to test this)

As there is no 'test' forum, 'off topic' would seem to be the closest one to use for testing forum facilities.
