Well, in this case because you responded to an existing thread rather than starting a new thread you don’t have that option. Neither answer is the solution to the original posting.
When you do start a new thread, you will have a little box with a checkmark below each response. You can press that for the solution to the problem in the original posting.
Given the changes that are in progress with logging (upgrading to Log4J 2) and the userdata folder (moving more stuff out), it might be better to wait. Though I know for a certainty any PR would be gladly accepted.
