1)i want to know how to edit a title after i post it.

2)what do things like first cup or flaming beta roaster mean . experience based on number of posts? They're just for fun. Click the Forum FAQ link in my signature...there's an entry about this that will give you more info.


3) how do i know whose advice to follow in forums? do u check if a particular solution posted actually works?That's a good question. Generally if a solution has been posted for a while and has received feedback you will know it works. The original poster of a thread can also mark the thread [resolved] by going to Edit->Advanced and checking the box, so that's a good way if you see it done. Otherwise there isn't a good method. Everyone here, staff included, are volunteers and while the help received in these forums is usually quite good it isn't authoritative nor is it sponsored/provided by Ubuntu developers, at least not usually.

thank u very much

i edited title after going to advanced but it does not change in main post

it seems to show edited title only when u click on post

iam not sure what is happening

If u see this post, i tried to edit but still stays same

Hmm. Sorry about that. Maybe only a moderator can do it? I thought anyone could modify their own titles.

If you have a thread that needs its title edited send one of us a PM with a link to the thread and the desired title or post a new thread here in the Forum Feedback & Help section with the same info and we will do it for you.

Yup, only moderators can edit the title of a thread sorry.

There's currently no way to change this without giving people mod privelages.

What a pity that vBulletin does not allow a non-moderator to edit the thread title of a thread (s)he created. I'm quite surprised it doesn't, as it seems a basic type of thing that people would want to do.

Is this something that vBulletin plan to add in a future release? I think it would be a useful feature to have.
