Occasionally when a question gets answered and the poster doesn't flag the question as answered, somebody flags it as "Assumed Answered". Who flags the question as Assumed Answered?
I think it's the OP.
I think you are correct but what I don't understand is why the OP wouldn't just mark the question as being answered instead of assumed answered. It would seem assumed answered would be used by someone else when the OP does not responD to a correctly answered question.
No, it's intended to be used when the OP either solves his own problem or gives up.
It's not available to other posters.
I always remember the lesson my wise grandpa taught be about the word assume.
It's also used when there are lots or responses, but none of them exactly solve the issue. And, as Mike indicated, the OP realizes that's all there is for this question.
I have used it only once as a signal to say: "OK, I think we can put a fork in my forum's question."
I think there is a 'user' here named "Assumed" and when a post gets an answer from that user, it automagically says: Assumed Answered.
Would it be safe to "assume" that you are trying to be funny?
Yes, beverly was being funny. And succeeded. I almost sprayed my monitor with gatorade when I read her response.
After a specified time, I believe Jive ( the forum software ) assumes it was answered.
