As designed Batch moving threads - lost their prefix

I merged a couple of forums and the threads lost their prefix.

Granted , the forum they were being moved to did not have those as available prefixes but I think these should either still move with the prefix or you get a warning the prefix will not be moved.

That is the same behaviour as XF1 - the prefix must be enabled in the forum the threads are being moved to.

This is indeed as designed, but we have added a message below the forum selector if any of the threads have prefixes to make it clear that they could be lost if the selected forum does not allow those prefixes:
If the selected thread(s) have any prefixes applied which are not valid in the selected forum, those prefixes will be removed.
