Is it possible to change the title of a thread?

Is it possible to change the title of a thread? (a question posed in this very thread's title)

If so, how?

If not, should I move this to the 'suggestions' forum?

If you're the one who created it, you can modify a thread's title by choosing to edit the original post.  The subject field is also opened for change.

Note, however, that all replies before the change will have the old title... and all replies to THOSE replies.
See the above... I just edited the title.  Anyone who replies to me, will have my new title.

Actually, Kalen, that's not correct. All new posts will have the title of the original post.

That would depend on which one you reply to, Xillen.  See above.

If you just hit reply for a thread, the new post will retain the title of the original post (like this one).

However, if I had quoted Kalen's post, this post would have taken on his changed title.

The easiest way to make sure the title change carries through is to change the title of the first post in the thread.
