Default Notification for posters when thread is merged

Hi there. This is a simple suggestion, though I'm not sure if it can be implemented into the forum. I believe the staff have the power to merge threads together, when threads are of the same topic. Well, a few times I've posted on a thread, and then that thread is merged with another... so then my post really stands out because it wasn't meant to be on the thread it was merged with.

I'm not sure if the thread creator gets a notification when threads are merged, but I'm pretty sure the people that posted on the thread do not. My suggestion? That the people that posted on a thread are notified when that thread is merged with another.

Enjoy...

That's a great idea, Ave!

But are threads merged a lot? If they are (I don't really know when they are) this would be a really helpful suggestion.

I love the idea. I have no idea if any of my threads are merged. If they did, I"m sure any member would want to know why there thread is merged. Awesome!

Default Re: Notification for posters when thread is merged

great idea Ave!

to answer your question, they creator is not notified. once, one of my threads was merged, and i was not told. i found out when i tried to visit the thread.


i think the idea would help a lot, because while they may be on the same TOPIC, the post could be radically different, and throw both threads off if you were notified, you could adjust your post so the thread continued to flow otherwise, you might wonder why the "starting post" on one thread is in the middle of another...LOL


rep for the great idea!

I think this is a wonderful idea. The first time my threads got merged together, I was so confused. It would have been nice to know what happened.

Great idea!

I've had this happen more than once, and my post kinda looks awkward among all the other ones. Like WAY off topic. Hehe.

It would be nice though, thanks for sharing!

I didn't know threads were merged. But I would like to be notified if it happened to me.

i never knew threads could be merged, but i am sure that it would be confusing and a little weird if i posted on them. i would definetly love to be notified if i posted on a thread that was merged. rep for the idea
