    I think there should be an ability, which should allow you to change the title of a topic the poster created at a certain amount of posts (100? 250? 500?)

    EDIT: 400th Post!

    That reminds me of something weird that happened to me:

    if you held your mouse on a topic title, it would say:

    "Press and hold to rename topic"

    that happened all day for 1 week

    i guess the reasoning was that they (the mods/admin/staff) are afraid that some lunatic will abused that feature to rename topics into obscene titles or do that to other people's thread

    yeah lol.

    That makes my idea good. "I think there should be an ability, which should allow you to change the title of a topic the poster created at a certain amount of posts (100? 250? 500?)" (The admins could stop certain people from doing this [​IMG])

    Just FYI, I was talking about you OWN topic...

    Also, Why does it say "Click and hold to edit title" when you hover your mouse over topic name? (on the board)

    If a Moderator reads this: please change the topic title, I misspelled debugger: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=207539
    If it's too many characters that way, then just remove the word.
    Thank you.

    Done. Thanks again.
