As designed Incorrect alert message on watched forums

Affected version
2.0.0 RC 1

If you watch a forum and a thread gets moved into that forum you get an alert saying that "X started a thread called Y" instead of saying that thread was moved into that forum, which may be a bit misleading

It hasn't changed since XF1 and it's actually as designed. From the perspective of someone who is watching a forum and a thread that has just been recently created in the wrong forum but moved, they don't really care how it got there, it's most likely a new thread for them.
