Default How to formally end or close a thread?

I have searched the help pages, read the FAQ's, searched a couple of forums and was unable to find out if there is a way to officially close a thread you started if you feel you have found the answer? Or, to mark the reply you feel answered the thread?

I have also looked at some threads and tried to see how others did this but I didn't find a thread I would considered closed...



I have used some forums that have choices to close a thread, forums that have a special symbol to close, or a special code or some where there is no way other than for the original poster to just say they got their answer...
Can someone just let me know what the etiquette is here?
Thank you.

We don't necessarily require threads to be closed; only mods/admins can close threads - users don't have permissions to do so. We usually just leave them open, and after a period of time they automatically close.
