    Cant seam to figure out how to edit the title of my own thread.. Old software had a button to 'go advanced' and allow you to edit the first post in your thread and change the title, but it doesnt seam to work for me now with the new software.. is it a mod/admin only thing now? Overall the site does seam to be working better/faster the last few days, and I can imagine this falls low on the list of things to sort out, just thought I'd mention it.. Of course, the problem may simply be ME.. and may just need some help/instruction here...

    If I had all the money I've ever spent on boats over the years, I would spend it all on boats. Yup, because I'm stupid like that..

    Once you click Edit the title should be in an edit box, change it and save. They made it easier for us to change titles. Something is easier.
    Edit: Big - I missed saying to edit post #1 for changing the title.

        As a test, Are you able to change the title of this topic by clicking on edit and inputting what you want it to say in the title line?

        If you'd like help, post a link to your topic in here and what you'd like the title to say now and we'd be happy to take care of it for you.

                Hey there Toneeees, I just wanted to let you know that I also just helped someone else change their title due to they weren't able to change theirs either in the Mercruiser forum.

                  Sounds like it might a forum permissions issue, I will check forum permissions.

                    It looks like the poster has 6 hours to edit the title after posting.

                        Hi Luke, I did a copy and paste of your above title change, is that how you wanted it to look?

                        Edit: Wow! Your boat turned out very nice. Congrats on a job well done.

                            Strange, I was able to edit a title several days later.

                              Was that on the previous version?

                              I just double checked it and it looks like the setting is actually set to 15 days (21600 minutes). I mis-read and did not see where it said minutes, I assumed the setting was seconds.
