Thread Merge and Move !!!

Hello

I want the thread BARBIE And Her Friends' Chatthread which I have just created in NT to be merged with the already existing chat thread of the same name in the chat threads section and also be moved to the chat threads section

The following link is of the thread which I have just created in NT

http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=316673

I have to create a new thread in NT because I cannot rename the thread which exists in the chat threads section on my own because that thread has been created by Tobi

Thank you

Re: Thread Merge and Move !!!

Why don't I just rename the original thread for you ?

Re: Thread Merge and Move !!!

I have asked Tobi quite a few times whenever I wanted to rename the thread, now I am feeling guilty

That's why I have created another thread and is asking you guys to merge them and move them to the chat threads section because whenever I would want to rename the title, I wouldn't have to ask you all

Re: Thread Merge and Move !!!

The posts get merged into the older thread, not the newer one - so you'd still have the same problem.

Or at least that's how I believe it works, I haven't merged a thread for ages.

Re: Thread Merge and Move !!!

Ok I merged them as an experiment that doesn't appear to solve your problem.

As I see it you have three options:

1. Ask tobi to rename the thread.
2. Ask a mod to rename the thread whenever you want - assuming that tobi doesn't mind.
3. Start a new thread.

One of the other admins/mods may have other suggestions as they're generally cleverer / do this merge thing more often.

Can you please discuss this matter with them because I really want to rename on my own without starting a new thread myself ???

I didn't wanted to make you feel bad

Just think about it, if I want to change the title every week, then I have to ask you guys every week to do it, don't you think that will be too much ???

They all look in this forum, I'm sure if they have anything to add then they will.

Don't hang your hopes on it though - as far as I can see it, the ordering of posts in merged threads is based on their chronology.

So the oldest post will always be the first of the thread.

You can merge them into threads with different titles but unless you have access rights to edit the first post of the thread, you won't be able to edit the title.

Thanks

That means the first post of the merged thread will always remain Tobi's, not mine

Okay, but can you merge a new thread with posts from a certain page of another thread ???

Not at all.

It's another reason why so many forums on this board have nominated mods - they're not just around to delete posts and handle complaints.

You're not the first poster to ask for a thread title to be changed.

I don't know who the chat threads mod is but I'm sure you could negotiate with them to change the thread title regularly - maybe not like, ten times a day, but once in a while isn't exactly that strenuous.

Personally, I think it's often nice to do something other than ban posters or change usernames.

So, I will ask here for a change, whenever I will need one
