Renaming threads, 20039

Hi I am wondering if anyone knows how to retitle a previously posted thread? I don’t like the name as it was originally made and I want to change the title. Is this possible? And how do you do it? Thanks gang!

There is currently no direct way to rename a thread at this time. There is, however, a means of redoing it.
  1. Make a new thread with the updated name and the content from the first post of the original thread.

  2. As the DM of the game, copy post by post the content already added to the game as the creator of the post.

  3. When everything has been copied and looks correct, delete the original thread by deleting the first post that made it.

It can be a bit lengthy do to it this way, especially if you've gotten close to the 100 post cap for the thread. Unfortunately, it is the only option at this time.

Our modern version of PBW is getting closer to beta testing with users. We can always bring this into consideration as an option once we've reached beta phase and can invite users to trial PBW 3.0.
