    If a thread's name (that you created) is not what you want it to be or may seem to much like another thread's title cna you change it? And if so how?

    Here's an example:

    http://www.thefantasyforum.com/showthread.php?p=383528#post383528

    It's just like the LOTR thread title. Can somebody let me change it so it sounds more unique.

    Edit the post, and then there's a box that has the thread title in it, above the box for the actual post. :)

    I did that but it only changed when I went into the thread. When you just go into the forum it's still the same. Do you know how to change it so it always show's the same no matter where you look?

    I have another question about changing a title. Are you able to change the options in a poll once you have created a thread? I want to do that for one that I just created but I don't know if I can or how to do so. Does anybody know?

    Here's a link to the thread that I want the poll choices to be changed in:http://www.thefantasyforum.com/showthread.php?p=384057#post384057

    I want Pirates of the Carribean to be one of the choices but some people already voted for that in the Other choice. Am I or a mod able to fix this? An urgent reply would be very appreciated.

    Did you want me to delete the "other" choice or just add the Pirates of Carribean to the options. I can fix it for you.
