Dave, what exactly can I do as a moderator and how do I find out where to do it? eg Can I split one thread into two if it wanders sufficiently off-topic, even if I haven’t started it?
The split and merge buttons are at the bottom of the first thread in the post. You can just follow the prompts from there. I’d suggest playing around on the test forum if you’re unsure.
And yes, you can split a thread even if you’re not the original poster. Just be sure to use this power with discretion and only in the name of truth, justice, and the American way.
Or English way, as the case may be?
