    Thread requests: title changes, merging, splitting, moving posts etc

    I have started a specific thread for user requests relating to threads:

    * Requests for the titles of threads to be changed
    * Requests for two or more existing threads to be merged
    * Requests for threads to be split into two or more threads
    * Requests for posts to be moved from one thread to another
    * Requests for polls to be added to existing threads
    (etc)

    ...and for any moderator replies to such requests or discussion of such requests.

    (In general for requests for threads to be started, the answer is "you can do it yourself".)

    The reason for this is that some posters continue to post requests to merge threads on a thread itself although regular posters should know by now that all requests relating to moderation are to be made in this section and not on the thread itself.

    Action may be taken against posters who continue not to get the message on this. I've even added a note to this effect on my sigfile.

    Old posts requesting thread changes will not be moved to this thread.

    Requests of this kind can also be made on the moderation questions thread and may be moved here.

    Requests for posts or threads to be deleted should go on the moderation questions thread.

    There was a request to change the title of the Pell thread from "George Pell acquitted of historic sex abuse" to "George Pell acquitted of historical sex abuse charges".

    I agreed with the request to add "charges" given that, in view of the acquittal, the position of the legal system is that it is not clearly established that the alleged abuse occurred at all (never mind who it was by if it did).

    I have not at this stage changed "historic" to "historical", but this remains under consideration and open for discussion. Firstly it is apparent that the use of "historic" in this context is common and that not all dictionaries draw a firm distinction between historic (sense: of importance to history) and historical (sense: happened in the past whether important to history or not). Secondly these particular charges of abuse are both historic and historical in the sense of the distinction drawn in view of the importance of the person charged.

    Could Capablanca-Fan's recent post on plastic bags and the coronavirus be moved to either of those threads, please? He seems to have forgotten that he was the one who initiated a specific thread on plastic bag restrictions

    My memory is not what it was
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Posts from #37 onwards refer to other tournaments, should not be on that thread.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
