edit my title?

    hi, sorta off topic. i wanted to edit the title of a thread i made, so i go hit the edit button, change it to what i want, and hit continue. to my surprise, my title has not changed! when i look at the actual thread, the title has changed there, but not in the list of threads. the change is significant enough (imo) that a change is necessary, but since the title isn't changing after the edit, it leaves viewers under the wrong impression, sorta like false advertising.

    lil help plz & thnk you
     
  2. If anyone besides yourself has replied to the thread you can't change the title. It can only be changed prior to anyone posting.

    I changed a title here one time..... right click in the subject line (not going into the thread) and you can edit it there...... least, that's what worked before.... and I think there are instructions around here somewhere for it

    'course, things change :D

    Really? I remember JC changing the title of his thread about the fansite policy shenanigans several times...

    Could it be a "rank" thing?

    Please try this FAQ entry:
    (I do not think this made it yet into our public FAQ, will look into it)

    I don't know what the problem is, I've tried all the solutions in here, including switching my browser to IE from Firefox. Thanks everyone for your efforts, I'll just go ahead and make the new post.

    Actually, this is very new with the new forums. In fact, I just used this method to fix your title for you.

    What versions of IE and FF were/are you using?

    If anyone else ever has any problems fixing their own title, please either Private Message a Moderator on the Forum (shown at the bottom right on the forum thread list page) or send an email to uoforumadmin@stratics.com
    • Please include a link to the thread that needs fixed when contacting us.

    Orvago, I think that the Advanced method only works to change the title, for certain levels of permissions/user groups - I ran into this in the early days of the new forums, when I was trying to edit stickies' titles on Players Center as a Mod.

    Try testing it with an account that only has standard posting privs.

    As for the poster clicking on the name on the forum level, just how small is the spot you have to target to do it? I've had some attempts take 20-30 times to hit the right spot (half the misses resulting in opening the message)
