Hey guys, I was just wondering why we, the users of techpb, don't have the ability to edit our titles. On pbn and mcb you can edit titles, is it just that techpb uses a different website layout thing? Or do you guys think it would be abused? What if it was an extra bonus for pc members?

Also, another idea for pc memebers is maybe the ability to lock their own bst threads? May cut down on the amount of reports asking for a thread to be closed.

I don't really seeing either of these privileges being abused if they are given to pc members with strict rules.

Idk, just tossing out a few ideas that have been on my mind recently.

The title thing mostly because our BST would end up looking like PBN's BST.

Ex:

►►►► super hottest gun on Techpb yo! check it ◄◄◄◄

What if more rules against that were implemented? I know there have been times where I've had a gearbag sale that I've wanted to update the title on, or make a spelling error or something, but don't really feel like it's worth bothering you guys. But I agree I don't want all the titles to be misleading and a strain on the eyes like pbnation.

If you have to justify it with even more rules, it's not going to happen. It's already hard enough to deal with the BST as it is, we don't need more rules and more opportunities for people to screw around.

Good point, instead of lightening the work load it would probably add on to it :lol: What about the ability to close threads? Maybe make it a pc perk?

then people could make troll threads and just close them... would not be a good idea... if you need a thread closed, just report it and a mod will close it...


keep this in mind, there are reasons why users can only edit the content of their threads, and not the titles or the ability to close/delete said thread... the site works fine the way it is...

I guess I somewhat disagree with the troll thing, like limit it to bst's only and pc. Idk, probably end up being more work for the mods, which is the exact opposite of my goals for my ideas. Thanks for all the answers :tup:

You seem to think that you can just think up an idea and we can do it. Its all a matter of the software we have for the forum and the work Slinky has to do to make access to these sorts of things. We've been doing it this way for almost 5 years and its been fine
