I just made a post, and I accidentally clicked "solved" but it ain't. Is there a way to reverse this action or am I left wishing my thumbs weren't so tap-happy?

You're left wishing

 

Once you mark a post there is no way to go back. You can add a post explaining the situation and what solution you actually found.

If you're concerned that people may bypass your question since it appears to be solved, you can start a new thread, explaining that you inadvertently marked the issue as "solved" in the original thread, and including a link pointing back to the original question so people can see what solutions have already been provided. I'd recommend also including a brief description of the problem so that people don't have to read the original thread to know if they might have information that would be relevant.

    Clearly this is something that should be reconsidered by Apple and the moderators. It's too easy to accidently tap the 'solved' button as your scrolling or otherwise navigating (especially with an iThing). I just did it and the answer certainly wasnt correct, I'm not about to start a new thread, but did explain what I think is a more correct response. It's just unfortunate to mark an incorrect answer a solution, my bad I guess.
