I dont think you can.

You'd have to get in touch with a moderator and have them do it. They are the ones with the name in red. EastCoastMojo is one.

Unpossible for us mere mortals.

I did it once. It was easy. I merely had to whine that I made a terrible mistake and could someone fix it for me? And a day or two later, it was fixed

Mods is good people here.

Alternatively, if nobody's replied to it yet, I think you can delete the post and start over again. Deleting posts here has weird effects, though, like some central database still says the post is there, so I wouldn't recommend this method in case it breaks something.

You have to be a superhero to do it.

Post up the thread title and what you would like it changed to here, and I'll take care of it for you.

Can we do that with other people's threads too?

If it's a really good request, I'll consider it.

One of the (many) 'charming' quirks of the GRM boards

Ah ha! Ok, well I just wanted to edit for things like new update in my build thread, nothing crucial and I don't expect the mods to change it every time I pop the hood and want to update my build thread!

Thanks for the replies though gentlefolk

you know, this brings up a idea i had about an old UBB board i used to be on. when looking at build threads, one rarely wants to know EVERY time someone posts to a build thread. but, it would be cool to see the date of the most recent thread starters comment. so the thread title would look like this:

1988 Ford mustang with FE 460 TT swap. (02.13.2017)

this date would change every time the topic starter posted in that thread. this way you would know when additions to the build thread were made, not just every time someone posted a 'cool project' comment, which is a waste of time to anyone but the thread author. now, i wasn't able to make UBB do it. i could only set up individual users to see when other individual users made board posts. it wasn't very helpful. im also certainly not asking mods to comb project threads and change tag line dates every day. but, i wonder, is this something that could be automated?

just a thought.
