    OK so I was trying to move 1 post into another thread. And the newest post always became the new topic starter.

    I don't believe it should work this way.

    If X thread is older and Y post belongs in X thread, shouldn't that post (Y post) follow into the thread and not end up as post #1 ?

    The older thread title becomes the thread title of the merged threads by default.

    Not the oldest post?

    Should be the oldest post, not thread.... Any ways, it was the newest post that became the topic starter. The original topic starter was older than the post.

    Was expecting the oldest post to remain the topic starter, yes. That was not what ended up happening.

    I can't reproduce this. I merged two threads:

    "Source" - older, first post by A
    "Target" - newer, first post by B

    Merged into "Target", now shows as being by A (as that's the first post). Basically, the thread should be owned by whatever post is showing up as first.

    Weird, I can read this thread, but I can not see this thread in the (sub) forum thread list. I saw this thread on forum_list in last_post.

    "Show Ignored Content"... but this isn't really related to the bug.
