    Default Changing name of tuts by ourselves


    How about each member having the ability to change his thread name?
    If I click edit and change the name, the name doesn't fully change.
    For ex, I change a name of tut of mine via edit buttons. Once I enter tutorials, I can still see the old name. But when I enter the tut itself, the name have change which seems a little pointless because the name outside is most important.
    Another website I'm a member at had an option that when you're in front of your thread with your mouse ( i.e in tutorials section for ex ) you can double click beside your tut name and a rename box will appear, so that you can change the name.
    just a crazy idea instead of bothering mods every now and then to update tuts just because a new CFW etc was released.

    Note : All my guides are outdated.

    I support this. Users should be allowed to change the titles of their threads in the Tutorials section.

    Members in the Programmers group should also be allowed to change the titles of their threads in the PSP Programming & Development section

    Only Admins/Mods can access the edit thread function.

    The function is not available as a per usergroup permission or on a per forum basis.


    For all other usergroups, there is a specific time limit (in minutes) within which the thread title may be edited by the user who started the thread.


    When you start a new thread, you currently have 5 minutes to edit the title of the thread and it will apply to the thread listing screen (forum display).

    After the 5 minutes expires, the change will only apply to the title shown in the first post of the thread.

    There is no "unlimited" option for thread title edits in vB.


    I could of course set say, a 5 year time limit @ 2,629,743.83 minutes or some other ridiculously high number to get around it, or just edit a template or possibly write a plugin to allow it on a per usergroup/forum basis.


    I can increase the time limit for now, which will give every forum member the ability to change their thread titles in any forum they have permission to post in.

    All thread title edits will be monitored.

    Any forum member found abusing it for whatever reason (flame bait, changing their thread title to something that has nothing to do with the thread content for their own amusement, etc.) will receive an immediate 2 week suspension.
