    on the old boards u coeld change the rirle of your post iirc. i tried to change this one http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=128137 , and the only thing that changed was the top line of the original post.

    if it isn't a big deal can we get the edit option back for the thread title?

    I think only the mods can change a thread title once it's set (when the first post is made).

    I have moderator controls, so I don't know what you might have. Look near the top of this thread for a "Thread Tools". If you have one, look for "Edit Thread". That's where I would edit the title of a thread, and as far as I know, the only way to do so. I do recall back before I was a mod having a problem changing my titles, but it really wasn't a big enough deal to mention.

    If you don't have access to that, then I guess it's a matter for Steve to answer. I have no idea what the admin has access to as far as changing that stuff, or if he would even want to do so if he can...

    thanks, i'll try that, but iam pretty sure i can't do it there or it would have changed when i tried before. it really isn't that big of a deal, i just remember being able to do it on the old board. maybe i couldn't do it there either & i am confused w/ a different board i get on. anyways thanks for the answer.

    Just remember, your looking for "Edit Thread", not "Edit Post".

    And if it's a significant issue, just hit "Notify Mod" with the text "Please change the title of my thread to <whatever>". I just did this recently for one of the guys.
