And people will have to update their bookmarks (which I'm going to try to use bit.ly's new URL editing to redirect the old
to the new thread).
Hopefully, I can get a dev to re-sticky it.
I read through some posts from the Devs about the forums, and unless I missed it, they don't seem to be saying "Editing past posts" to be a problem that they're working on. Am I wrong? Are they, indeed working on it & I just missed it?
Should I just sit tight, or go for making a new thread?
I think you should make a new thread, Spidermitch
If you can't keep your charts up-to-date, your effort will quickly become wasted. It sucks that you'll lose this massive thread, it really does... but people love your work. They can easily change their bookmarks and all that.
And by making a new thread, you'll make a post under your own name, instead of Archived Post. That way, you can edit your charts to new changes.
And once a dev is aware, they'll happily re-sticky it :smile:
(And on the 'editing past posts' issue, I read something about that. They tried to keep the Archived Posts under original names, they really did, but it caused unacceptable security issues or something like that... so they relucantly kept it as it now)
Was named Trek17, but still an author.
Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.
