Given the nature in which people tend to chat on this board, have you guys considered allowing the Thread title to change as the nature of the posts do? The Smarkies thread in Site Bashing runs through about four different phases, and it may still be evolving as I type. I know that threads are *supposed* to stick to topic, but given that that's not the case, I was just wondering if anyone has put any thought to this, or if this is just part of life at Weinerville.

No see, it's a skill. A badge of honor even, when a perfectly good thread gets turned on its ear and everybody jumps on board the gravytrain to weirdness. If the thread headers changed (and who would do the changing?) then all the history of the thread would be lost. Don't piss on tradition man.

And if I could, I'd change this thread title to: Burkett's Cheese, Please. Thus rendering the posts weirdest of all because I changed it backwards! And probably also rendering me banned, for at least a day or two.

I don't get the Burkett's Cheese, Please joke. I'm not saying that the history of the thread has to be forgotten. The old posts would still exist as the concept of the thread would remain unchanged. I'm just saying that the main heading would change to reflect current content. For exampe, instead of saying "Evolving Topics" this thread title could now say something like "Burkett's Cheese... wtf???" to reflect the topic of my post. Or something of that nature.

There's no joke. It's just what I'd change it to

It's a fair enough idea, but currently it can't really fit into our database setup.

Besides, all the threads in Politics, no matter what it started as, would be called either "I love Bush" or "Bush is a Poopyhead" and confusion would reign.

Why is it, dear Zims, that I cannot seem to post more than once on a thread. Like when I started this one, I couldn't add something to it five minutes later in a reply. I know this even before I do it. So help. Please?
