Please offer title edit. Offer the edit to be side-by-side with the origional name, so that people looking for the topic who've found it before can find it again. But, allowing for an edit means that people can fix mistakes that might make it hard for people to find these posts during topic searches, rendering some of these topics much less helpful to the bleepingcomputer community.
My last topic is call "Creen Issues, 2 Computers". I'm going to guess that Creen isssuse wont come up for someon who types in Screen with lines, etc... even though that is an issue talked about in my post, all because I can't fix the word screen, or anything else if I needed to. And the same could easily be the case for people who would be able to help me but who will gloss over my post or won't find it because of the erroneous name.

This would also elliminate all those unhelpful "HELP!" titled posts so that posts dont have to be reposted under another name, cluttering the site.

It would be great if all versions of title for a post were visible, The best/newest being big and the others listed below it or in a collom next to it in small type, so that they are recognizable after change and so that all versions of the title can come up in searches (for people looking for a thread that they are keeping track of, this keeping the post/thread they know still available after a search through its old name even though it's name may have changed).

Thanx for all your time!

Unfortunately what you ask for is not possible with the current software. If a member needs a topic edit, they can always contact a member of the moderation team for assistance.


I changed Creen to Screen in your topic title :)
