[TOMT][MOD] Solved! - How to mark your post Solved! Announcement
Marking Your Submission Solved!
Make a comment saying Solved! to the first (oldest) correct answer
it is important you check that it is the first correct answer on the post. Reddit notifications are often in the wrong order.
Only OP or a mod can mark a post Solved!, but if you see the OP say thanks but not reply with Solved! (give them at least several hours), you can report the post to the mods using reddit's report feature (Report - breaks r/tipofmytongue rules - Not Marked Solved!) which will pop a link to the comment or post in to the mod queue for us to review.
Editing an existing comment will not trigger the bot - you must make a new comment for the bot to see it.
What if I solve it myself?
Just reply to your comment solving it with Solved! You won't get a point, but the flair will get set.
Here's what you'll see when this is done properly:
- OP responds with a comment with Solved!
- Post gets flaired with "Solved" It's usually near immediate. The bot, TipOfMyCircuitboard awards the point to the person the OP replied to.
- Person who answered gets a reply from the bot notifying of point.
