    Note to Mod.
    There is a confusing error in the instructions.

    The instructions concerning marking a thread resolved has a mistake.

    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/forum-feature-resolved-thread-prefix.1093283/

    It says:

    Instruction 1 is not valid, if you click Edit, the gear icon is no longer there, you need to click the gear icon 1st.

    This looks like something @Doctor Q can take care of.

    Thanks.

    Here's how it now works.

    To change the prefix of a thread that you started (and which is recent enough that you can still edit it):
    1. Click the gear icon above the thread to see the Thread Tools drop-down.
    2. Select the Edit Title option.
    3. Select Resolved from the drop-down in front of the thread title. If there is no drop-down, you can't change the thread prefix for that thread.
    4. Click the Save Changes button.

    And is that 'gear' icon visible only if you are the person who has started the thread in question?

    Yes. If you aren't the thread starter, there's no gear icon since you can't change anything about the thread.

    Thanks a lot for taking the time & trouble to confirm this; actually, last night, I went back to a thread I had started myself just to check this out for myself and did indeed manage to find the gear icon.

    Thanks again.
