Changing title of threads

Is there a reason why the title never updates when you change them?

Like i updated the title of this thread

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...highlight=kill

but it still shows the old title in the index and when you search for it

If you want a thread title changed just report the thread to the mods, normal forum members can't edit a thread title to prevent people doing things from like... Creating a thread with the title "Post in this thread if you're awesome" then changing it to "Post in this thread if you suck," etc.

you could give backers and/or spam police permission to edit own thread titles. i assume its a group permission. just a thought

but i can understand your reasons for not letting everybody change them.

That's always been a moderator thing. Not just on TouchArcade, but basically every forum in existence.

You can only change a thread title for a few minutes after you've posted the thread, or until someone else makes a first post in it. Dunno what it is exactly. I had to change a title once after I made a game thread and it worked. Idk if this is still possible.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Changing Title of Threads

Hi, I am supposed to ask that too. How to change? but when I saw the "go advanced" option button then I thought that would be the answer in editing the title. Personally, I always resort to that button whenever, I commit mistakes in the title but if it does not work for you and so we might be needing a moderator's assistance for that matter.
