When you start a topic, you are now able to flag replies if you find them particularly helpful.
When flagged, they will appear highlighted in green to other users. This makes it easier to see helpful replies in a long topic and also gives a bit of kudos to the person who helped.

Do I win a flag?
Excellent feature Will, it should prove a hit.
I forgot to mention, this feature will be rolled out to the gallery comments too if it proves successful in the forums.
I've also flagged this post of mine as helpful, so you can see what they look like.
Hang on you flagged me first.
I think EPZ is making a rod for its own back actually!
Just wait for the complaints from people about their replies not being flagged!
Can I have a flag please?
Get in line. I asked first.
Boyd, I should point out that messages should only really be flagged as helpful if they are helpful to the subject of the topic.
Good idea this, but it will obviously rely on the owner of the forum topic or gallery image taking the time to flag the useful comments.
Especially useful in the forum where we typically get about 60 incidental comments for every useful one
Nice idea for the forum
But I'm not sure that it will work in the gallery
We are hoping that this will encourage good topic posts. If someone asks a question and gets 60 replies one of those replies may have totally answered the question, 30 given decent but not conclusive answers and the rest been totally irrelevant.
Anyone new coming to the thread could read the first post and jump straight to the most useful answer.
If used correctly this will be a great feature...and then again you can choose to ruin it! It's up to you!
This is a divisive feature, IMO - going along the path of the clicks/blue hearts in the gallery.
You will have chums flagging each others replies - helpful or not.
If people abuse the system they will have their ability to use it withdrawn.
