    For one I no longer have the ability to alter thread titles. I had repeatedly changed the names of threads that @shootER was using to put my posts in from other threads.

    But if you are the original writer of a thread you are supposed to have thread tools aren't you?

    Another example of administrators abusing their power?

    For some reason your account had the ability to change all thread titles, not just the ones you started. You weren't the thread starter for several of those threads, yet you kept changing them because you were having a tantrum.

    You abused the board tool, so now you no longer have access to it. Just like you and others have abused the Report Post function and then had it taken away.

    If you need to edit a thread title due to a typo or something, PM a mod and they'll do it for you.
