@ChrisK, as @HackerNCoder mentioned, it has nothing to do with you being a new user, it’s just how this feature (i.e. Mark as Solution) works in Discourse right now. Thanks for the feedback, I’ll look into this. In the meantime, I have reopened the concerned discussion thread.
I’m a new user who posted about Norton 360 treating Tor as a Trojan Horse; and even though I just posted that Norton has resolved the issue… I as a new user does not have an option to hit any button saying that there is or has been a “solution.”
