I made a mistake when posting and need to change the Title. Is seems I can change the Subject line inside the post, but I want the title. How can this be accomplished. Thanks, Mike

You can edit your post this way, but you can't edit the thread title. Only a Moderator or administrator can edit a thread title.
Therefore, the way to change a thread title is to report the first post in the thread and just request that the title be changed to whatever you want. If the original poster requests a title change, it will be edited by a moderator when they get a chance. This happens regularly.

Have Fun!

Thanks for this response. I reported my own post...so hopefully a moderator will change the title.

Moderators are pretty laid back. For quicker response you might try a PM, moderators are sometimes shown at the bottom of the forum page.

Done. I did not realize that the thread the OP wanted changed was in a forum where I am the moderator. I did not know what thread he was talking about until he reported it.;)

Have Fun!

P.S. I also moved it to the MK5 forum due to title change.
