Editing a topic title
« on: Wednesday 10 October 18 15:55 BST (UK) »
Is there a way to edit the title of a thread I started? 
It contains a name that turned out to be a red herring, so I'd like to remove the name as it's now a misleading distraction.

Click on the Report to moderator option (bottom right of the post).  Then just type "please change this thread title to (whatever)".

This feature is also useful for moving a post to another board if needed.

Thanks!  Other forums I use allow the thread creator to edit title and opening post.  I thought I must be missing something.

You can edit it yourself but only in the first 24 hours after posting it.  :)
