    You can also ignore the thread once you have an answer (I have my settings so that I don't get notifications for replies, so for me this works perfectly).

    Thank you, but what do I do in the future if the replies to my thread have answered my question sufficiently so that I don't need any more answers, it seems there should be a way to tell folks that I'm good on the answers or to delete my own post. What should I do to avoid people wasting their time?

    Deleting your post (and hence the thread) would defeat part of the point of a forum: someone else with the same problem being able to find an existing answer.

    You can always post back to the thread "great, that fixed it, thanks" or similar. Those who read the thread will then know that the question is answered. Those who don't bother reading it and post anyway, well it's their business. You could use the "report" option to ask the mods to close each thread, but you could argue that's also wasting their time. And of course it's possible that someone might still post something that would be helpful to someone else. So my advice would be to ignore the thread once you are done and don't worry about what other people choose to do.

    I find that a lot of the questions that i want answers to, have already been asked by someone else?
    so... I often get my answers for free without asking a question :)
