Not a Bug New alert triggered when moving post to new thread?

    I moved a post to a new thread and a short while later got an alert that the OP had replied to post (new thread name I'd created).

    I realise it's technically a new thread, but it is the result of a moderator action rather than the OP starting a new thread themselves so should it warrant an alert?

    Is this intended? (or perhaps unavoidable?)

    Err, not sure I understand this. If you got a reply alert, it's because there's a new reply in that thread -- the mod action doesn't create any alerts. Alternatively, you could've had the alert before the post was moved to a new thread.

    Ooopppsss .... I suspect that's what's happened. <nips off to try another move ... back in a mo.> :oops:

    Surely if the alert was for the new thread then it arrived after the split?

    Yup, that was it. Alert already existed, and - being the good alert that it was - followed the post even though I'd moved it to another new thread.

    Apologies for the false alarm. :whistle:

    Ah, was it a quote alert?
    Or a watched thread alert?

    No, regular new post alert, but it had arrived before I'd moved the post - I just hadn't been paying attention.

    Soz. :cry:

    I'm still a little confused.
    How did the alert have the new thread name if it arrived before the split?

    I've moved it a couple of times now and the alert seems to "get" the thread name change and use the latest thread name.

    I'm assuming the ajax re-gets the alert data before displaying it?

    I moved it to "What's my IP?" and that's the thread name that appeared in the alert. I moved it again to "What's my IP address?" and when I next hover over alerts it changes the alert text and now uses the new thread title.
