I understood that if the original poster marked a post as the Correct Answer, that post was immediately embedded in the opening post, and the thread was automatically marked as Answered. However, I have just seen this in the forums in Spanish, with the first answered marked as Correct but with the question marked "Assumed Answered" and no embedding:
Is this normal, or a glitch?
How clever of you!
Argh, I see, Claudio.
Jacob, it must have been a temporary glitch. I got another participant to add a message in my test thread in the forum in Spanish, marked it as Correct with the thread marked as Assumed Answered, and got again what is now the normal behaviour in these cases.
Nice research, Claudio.
