Ask for editing thread title and moving thread


Hi moderators,

I would like to ask for help in editing a thread title at the forum list and to move a thread to a more appropriate group.

I should post it here right?

Regards,
Eryn Ng

No. If you want your thread to be moved, simply use the "Report" button and state your request there. You can also edit the title by pressing the "Edit" button and then the "Go advanced" button.

Thank you Nylex.

I have already tried "Edit" and "Go Advanced". It only change the small title on the edited post, but not the big title of the whole thread that appeared in the forum list. I get to know that only moderator is able to change the title from previous post.

I will go to the report to state the request.

Oh, ok. I'd also suggest using the "Report" button for requesting that the title be changed.

There is a limited window of time where you can edit your own thread title - I think it's 5 minutes or so, but I may be out on that. As Nylex says, if you need a move or an edit (only to the thread title, you can do your own post ) just report your own thread and request the change or move.
