Why cant we edit thread titles? It would be nice if we could.
Well if we could do our own how mods can do it (double clicking next to the title) it would be dandy!
I think it is something in vB, all the vB forums I am on are that way, but I do agree with you.
You can edit a title and have it show if you notice and correct it shortly after posting it, I think it's like a minuet or so, after that it is in mod territory.
You can change the text that appears above your post (in bold), but I haven't found a way to change the actual title (as seen from 'new posts', or any of the sub-forums).
I had just explained it, it has to be done imeadiately in order to alter what appears as seen from 'new posts', and sub-forums.
why do they do that?
It's an option for the admins to have it function this way. A VB board can easily be set up to let anyone change their own thread title at any time, however.
I've never been a mod or admin on a vB Forum, the phpBB forums I have mod and admin privledges on are like that by default, I never honestly saw any reason for such an option (user can/can not alter titles selected), so I never really thought of it. It leaves me with the same question that Ejazzle posed.
