Lack of interest Merging two threads easier

When I want to merge two threads, I have to select both threads in forum view screen.
Why is not possible to select first thread in the thread view by Thread Tools option, and then just paste link of another thread that we want to be merged with first one?
Like we have solution when we move post from one thread to another.

I am in big problem when I have to merge one new thread with another one old thred which I found with search and it is on 25th page of thread lists, and to know that, I have to look one by one page.

You don't need to page through 25 pages if you know the URL of the thread.

You load the thread and then select it in the tools dropdown menu:

You do the same for the other thread then go to the forum view and click the red link:

upload_2015-2-25_22-54-52.png

Then choose the option to merge.

Yep, silly me. I allways think that this option is for something else.
But, still would be easier to have solution same as when we move post from one thread to another

The system which is used for posts can't be used for threads.

Posts can only be moved to either a new thread or a single existing thread.

When merging threads, multiple threads can be merged at once, so a single field for pasting a URL wouldn't work.
