Changing a type of thread from question to discussion RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a guideline where in moderators are advised to change the type of thread from questions to discussions and comment it out saying no follow up. An example thread. There were two replies which were marked as answers by one moderator and then changed unmarked by another one and the type was changed. I can see hundreds of posts which were left untouched and the best replies are being marked as answers eventually by people who deem they were the probable answers. Are we going to go and change the types on all of those. Would really appreciate if someone can provide insight on this.

  • No. Did you ask Steef-Jan about this?

    I can ask him if you want. What does he mean by the cumulative update in "No follow up and cumulative update have brought the solution to problem." ...?

  • Hi Ed,

    In particular thread the asker asked for thoughts in his last post, hence his issue is not resolved nor is the question answered in my view. I would also like to ask how the following can be explained as I came across in this thread:

    Two different account with same post.

  • The two different accounts... they are posted 9 minutes apart, so the simplest explanation is that the person posted from the wrong account (not the one he wanted to post from), so he copied the text, deleted the post, logged into a new account, and pasted the text back in. In fact, this is very likely since the earlier post even has the same name/signature.

    Thanks Steef-Jan! I'm still not sure why that earlier post was changed to a Conversation though.

  • @ Ed, Didn't have the contact of Steef-Jan to get in touch with him. 

    @ Steef-Jan, The post you are referring to was brought to my notice by the forum owner(Ed H.) and I think I explained the situation. If I get your contact I would be more than happy to touch base on that.

  • Hi,

    Changed to question still issue remains as stated in last post by asker:

    My Original Post:

    "I can no longer open the BTS admin console, i get the error "MMC cannot initialize the snap-in".  I've tried running as administrator, starting from the command prompt (BTSMMC.MSC) and looking in the event logs for clues, no luck.  What can I do?  This was a working system for quite some time.  I completed an upgrade from the Windows Server RC to RTM (2008 R2 w/SP1)."

    I reinstalled the base OS but that's had no effect. I looked through the registry as suggested above and read through the CU 2 package but there are no solutions that address this problem.

    Thoughts? <---
