Make forums function differently.

As far as I can tell, upon a single person responding to your forum post, it becomes marked as answered. This doesn't work great, because people who are trying to help others might be looking at unanswered posts list. A way to remedy this I think would work better would be making topics similar to github issue trackers. The author of the topic can mark it as answered, mark a specific reply as the answer in case someone else looks into that post with a similar problem, and so on. I could make a far more detailed explanation of what I mean, but I believe this is sufficient to get my general idea across.

The main reason I want to solve this is often times I see forum posts from people get the first reply within maybe 5-15 minutes, and then either no replies ever again, or they never get solved.
