Hi:

 

If there are no replies to your post, you have to reply to your post and then mark it as solved.

OK, spelling this out for the benefit of others who may have the same puzzle.

1. Suppose you post a topic-starting message that contains an actual solution already. There's no facility to mark that as a solution.

2. You can reply to that post with a dummy message.  (While creating that reply, there's no facility to mark it as a solution.) Post that message.

3. In the list of messages for that topic, find the just-posted message.  Since it's a reply, it has both  Reply and "Accept as Solution" buttons. Hit the "Accept..." button.

Bottom line: The "Solved" feature is oriented to the use-case of people asking a question, then someone else providing the solution message, then the original poster accepting that message as a solution.  As a side-effect of having an accepted message, the topic/thread gains a "Solved" status.
