Not a good idea to mark a reply as answered while the thread is still going.

Donna - just go to your first post at the top and there should be a button that say "mark this a unanswered" - click on that.

The daft thing about marking a post as answered is that it marks the whole thread as answered on the front page (shows with a green tick). People then often won't bother looking as they think you don't need any further help. Personally, i never use the answered tick.
