    Yes, I deleted my post since it was no longer required after the merge. Thanks gonaads :)

    Deleting my own posts is not a crime :p
    ...especially when it's to avoid any sort of confusion :D

    Once you've merged these threads, please let either myself or gonaads know so we can update the link on the front page sticky. For every merge a new link is created... the threadid= changes.

    Members can't discuss the problem if the link doesn't take them to the thread.

    Thanks

    Applies more to the person doing the actual merging...but yeah, once the merge is done, either I or the one who did the merging will post in here. Sound good? ;)

    I think the last time you did it, it happened the other way around; i.e., the linked thread was merged into a newly posted thread. That's how the thread title changed to the title of the new thread, and had to be changed again.
    I doubt the "threadid" changes if you merge into the linked thread, but I could be wrong. Anyone else can confirm this?

    yeah, just lock em now. gets confusing as **** with all the requests being in one thread. kinda makes a mess of the forums, but i think locking is the way to go for now :)

    Right. That's what I was doing at first, before I was asked to merge them instead. Will go back to locking threads now, after posting a link to the fix. Makes it easier for me, and all the other mods as well ;)

    Here comes another one: http://www.ntfs.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=37334
    *Goes off to lock thread*

    for some reason earlier the link on the front page to the discussion thread was pointing to a post id which is why there was a problem whenever you merged the the link would then point to the merged post id... Jewelzz brought this up last night.
    Now the link on the front page points to a thread id and now posts can be merged with out effect. The link jst points to the first post in the thread...

    If this all makes sense please send $5 to my headache fund. :p
