    How do I merge a thread with another?
    To merge a thread, you must have moderation powers in the forum the thread was posted in, and your admin must have given you powers to merge threads.

    To merge, open the thread that you wish to add another thread to the end of, and select "Merge Thread" in the "Mod Options" menu at the very top. Then, select a thread to add to the end of the current thread from the pull-down menu on the next screen.

    Please note that both threads must be in the same forum to be merged.

    I think I've spotted a bug in the system, how do I go about reporting it?
    You can post in our Suggestions and Bug Reports forum, making sure you include detailed information about what you think you're seeing that you think is not working correctly. We like to troubleshoot and fix any bugs as quickly as we can and the best way to help us do that is to post one link to a example that we can go check out.


    Using the Custom Fields we've set up that forum for what Browser, including the Version along with what Operating System you've using can be beneficial too, because sometimes things are only found to be affecting a certain browser version and type. We appreciate the time it takes you to make a bug report and any information you can give us about the issue will help us resolve it quicker.
