Assumed resolved

Assumed resolved is a tricky one. You may find that when you are reading through threads you will see a "This question has been reviewed by a staff member and is assumed resolved" at the top. If you come across this, it means that there was no confirmed resolution and the original poster has not yet came back to let everyone know that their question or concerned was resolved and there are no replies on the thread from other users that are confirmed resolutions.

FAQs

My thread was locked! What do I do!?

If you have questions regarding a topic that was locked, you will need to create a new thread.

 

Why was my thread marked "Assumed Resolved" when its not resolved?

The thread was marked "Assumed Resolved" because there was no clear resolution to the thread and the original poster did not come back to the thread to let anyone know that they still had concerns for over 48 hours.

 

I found an answer that was marked "Correct" and it is just a Community Manager sending a private message to someone. How do i know what the resolution was?

In this situation, the Community Manager needed to gather personal information from the user to better assist them and we don't want users to post their information publicly. If the original poster does not come back to the thread to let everyone know the outcome of their concern, you can @mention them to see if them can share that info.
