    One of the functions of this specific forum is to both help resolve build questions and problems.

    Some questions and suggestions result in the build WiKi being updated, others not (as the point may not be valid!)

    Some members have mentioned that they constantly trawl the forum to check that they have picked up up the latest information, but this is time consuming and inefficient and not particularly effective.

    Just wondered if there was a way (other than an actual comment) say a new column in the list of posts, to indicate if the suggestion has been considered or not, the categories could be Yes but not worth it, Yes updated XXX, or simply blank meaning that it has not been considered yet.

    The way other forums handle stuff like this is prefixing the thread title with [BUG], [FIXED], [SOLVED], [ANSWERED] and so on whatever you like.
    But this requires a group of moderators/members to take care of that who also edit the wiki so they have an overview of what was considered and what not...

    I believe that there are two people who use this forum who have access to and who do edit the WiKi
