    Here are some upgrades that seriously need to happen:
    * Users should be able to change their own topic titles
    * Users should be able to delete their own posts

    We will not be allowing users to do either. And, regarding your signature, name changes are for TFW2005 supporters only.

    To expand a bit on Joe's response:

    Allowing users to change the titles of their threads would cause a technical problem in the forum in regards to search engines as well as our very own search engine - if you can change the thread title at anytime, it's going to generate a massive amount of data that's having to be re-written in the system over and over and over, everytime a user or a guest checks the site after you've changed the thread title.

    That will, eventually, cause server slow-downs and we know how much you all hate that.

    As for the second bit, you can delete your own post within a few minutes of you posting it (unless it's a post that's starting a thread).

    And finally ... you can have your name changed once you've become a TFW2005 supporter at the $25 mark. So please don't PM me about it anymore.
