confusing karma summary messages about answers

Bug #210331 reported by Przemek K. on 2008-04-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

When you answer a question on Answers you get the following messages:
Answered question
Gave answer on a question
They are confusing because you don't know which one of them is about solving a question and about just giving an answer. One of them should be "Solved a question".

Can we take this opportunity to stop using the word "solved" in reference to questions in Launchpad? A problem is solved. A question isn't solved, it's answered.

You are right. Answers should display "Problem solved" instead of plain "Solved" and karma summary should display "Solved a problem" (or something like that).

Changed in launchpad-answers:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
