Giving All Members the Authority to Change the Title of Threads Started by Him or Her

Why not? Can we do it? I think that if the software allows for it, we should be able to go back and change our own titles. Many would go back and insert and NWS warning in the title without having to wait for a mod or admin to roll by. What if I have an update and want to highlight that so that people actually click again on my thread? I really wouldn't see the harm in doing that.

I recognize that links to threads with changed names would be broken, but I believe even that can be avoided if links posted from threads point to a thread by thread number and not by thread name.

What does everyone think?

As much as I think it's a great idea, I know it will be abused.

The same way the ability to edit posts gets abused?

If only the thread makes can adjust it, I don't see it getting abused. I dont think people will go back and randomly change their title without reason.

Try it out and see if theres abuse if so I suggest people with 2k+ post are giving the right to change the titles of the threats they created.

Why not do it the same way editing is done? Let them edit the title for 10-15 mins after posting, that way if there's a mistype that they did not notice while posting they could fix. One of my threads from a long time ago about the clutch stop has some horrible typos in it... wish i coulda changed... but then again I've never asked mods to change them either...
