I like to pretend I'm pretty attentive... Clicking that picture should give you the full size one, by the way.

Anyway, that was after a post but before enough time had elapsed for FT to add the little "last edit by *" at the end of my post, when I went to fix a typo. The thing I noticed: The subject field is editable. Is it supposed to be, and I'm just an idiot, yet again?

It's suppose to be, but it doesn't change the topic's name, just the subject name of your post...

Or at least that's what I think, from what I've seen on other forums/etc.  :lol-fox: :lol-fox:

I edited the subject once in the "Classic Count to a Million Thread"

No one ever noticed.

That feature has been there for a while.

Thank you FT, for proving I'm an idiot. However, it was worth asking.

Don't worry your not an idiot, you just made a simple mistake, well not even a mistake really, just a lack of knowledge on the certain topic. Now you have more knowledge in your brain to prevent another lack of knowledge moment ^.^

@Squawk - It's the disturbing high amount of time that this happens, both in FT, and IRL, that makes me feel like an idiot. There's very little you can say to fix that - you're not wrong, but I'm rarely right.

It happens to me very often, but I don't see it as disturbing, and if I'm a idiot, oh well! And ooh paradox! "You're not wrong, but I'm rarely right." Your saying your a idiot, I'm saying your not a idiot!... Nevermind it's not a Paradox! Another moment of stupidity for me!

And for an additional bit of trivia, changing the subject of the first post in a thread will change the subject of the entire thread (including how it's displayed, and how later replies are auto-filled), but changing the subject in any other post in a thread will only affect that post :-)

Ah yes, sorry about that, my mistake! The first post does change it, every other one doesn't though. Please forgive my "Mistake" :P
