    Edit the first post in your thread and remove the '[RESOLVED]' title and post icon.
    Delete it. They just clutter threads anyway.

    All that "marking resolved" does is change the title and add an icon to a thread. You can edit the thread (using the drop down menu) and remove the "resolved" text as well as change or remove the icon.

    You also have the option of simply starting a new thread and referencing the original thread in your post.

    Hello,

    At the top of the thread page, you should see a "Thread Tools" option. Since you started the thread, you should have an option to edit it. Is that not the case?

    I don't see that in my threads.
    Nevertheless, we are be able to edit our first post, which reflects on the thread information.

    So ADQUSIT, in the first post of your thread, click on edit and follow the earlier mentioned steps.
    Delete it. They just clutter threads anyway.

    I just simply press the edit button on my first post, and i wrote "I need it urgent" and press save button. but the resolved option is still here.

    Ah, perhaps I am getting confused with Moderation options.

    Once you click "Edit", then click the "Go Advanced" button. In there, you should see the options that you want.

    @ gep13

    I went to advance option and there it asked me for reason of editing and in another text box it was written RESOLVED "and then title of the question" I removed the RESOLVED text and saved the message but it didn't remove still"

    Ok, so looking at this thread, it looks like you have been able to remove the RESOLVED message, but you just need to click the option to not use an icon for the thread title.
