    Has there been any thoughts about allowing the edition of the title of a thread when the original poster presses the edit button? Just a thought I had that might be useful.

    You can always request that a thread be renamed by hitting the report button.

    Mentors can get it done very fast. Don't worry!

    I don't see a reason why you should change the title. You should make a nice descriptive title at first.

    Some of us make typing mistakes that we wish we could go fix without having to ask someone to do it for us.

    Poo-pooing the problem as "not a problem" doesn't help fix it.

    Editing titles is one of the easiest things we do as Mentors. Almost like taking a 30-second vacation... :biggrin:

    Well, in THAT case ...

    I appreciate all the work the mentors do, so anything to give them a vacation :smile:
