Editable Topic Titles

    I wish… smile

    That the OP could edit the topic title as he can the op.

    As an example:

    I posted a topic called “HP Staff”.

    In retrospect, this sounds like a message to HP, when that was not the intent.

    It would be nice if I could have gone back and changed it to:

    The HP Staff.

    The HP Staff at HubCamp.

    The Annual HP Picnic Staff Picture.

    The HP Annual Board Meeting.

    HP is Watching You!

    Etc.

    The main use of this function, however, would be to clean up nuances, typos, spelling errors, grammar errors, etc.

    Edit: Feel free to change the title to something awesome if so inclined. smile

    Edit #2: My current favorite is:

    The HP Staff Is Watching Us!

    I can see this just causing confusion, not to mention it opens to door to some potential abuses by spammers and people having flame wars.

    In retrospect, maybe you just need to think about your titles for just a minute before you make a new forum post...

      I knew someone like YOU would come along…

      We are talking about the human species here! What YOU are suggesting is just never going to happen. smile

      BTW, here is a better way for YOU to have made your statement:

      “People just need to think a minute before making a forum post.”

      As opposed to your original statement:

      “In retrospect, maybe YOU just need to think about your titles for just a minute before YOU make a new forum post...”

      Did YOU notice how I didn’t use the word “YOU” in my suggested statement?

      Do YOU understand? smile

    Since the comments you made were in first person singular, it made sense that my replies be in second person singular, as they were addressed to the sole other participant in the thread.

    If you don't like being directly addressed, maybe your future forums posts should utilize a third person form of representation or the infamous royal "we."

      So much for my attempt at trying to create a kinder, gentler relache… smile
