    i like the way its set up, so that a place marker stays where the original poster posted it, but its also in the correct category for the people who would be interested in knowing, or have the information to answer it.


    cheers to that mod!:)

    oh i thought it was a mod in vbullitin. thats what i was refering to.

    hm, that might cause some spamage, but maybe if there was an option in vbullitin to have it automatically send you a mail when your post gets moved, that would be cool.

    Nope it's always been an option (see attachment) It's just up to the mod which option they use, I normally use the top one, the middle is selected by default, and the bottom..well seems kinda pointless to me :)

    I used to go with the top one, because i makes more sense. But I remember Jewlezz telling (either just me or everyone, i don't remember) to use the middle one - leave a redirect. probably because i remember several members complained they couldn't find their threads and started them again where they where just moved from. If that makes any sense :)

    I've always been using the second option to leave the redirect in place, just in case any members have bookmarked the thread.
    Don't want anyone getting a thread not found error message :)

    3rd option copies the thread but keeps the uncopied thread in the regular area

    Twasn't me as I've never used the redirect. I, like SPeedY_B and Enyo, use the top one. Kinda pointless and messy to leave a redirect, IMO
