Currently when you move a thread to a new forum you can create an expiring or permanent redirect from the origin forum to the target forum. However, in a busy forum, this redirect will quickly fall down the list of active threads, even though the actual thread may have many recent replies.
I'd like to add the ability to create a permanent redirect to a thread that gets bumped to the top of the stack any time the parent thread is replied to.
Here is an example of why I want this:
I have a Civil War forum, and someone posts a Photograph of Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg. We have a Gettysburg Forum, a Robert E. Lee Forum, and a Photographic Study Forum, and members who frequent each of these forums would be interested to know that the thread exists, and that it was recently updated.
It would be awesome if the redirect included some information that the parent thread was located in "Robert E. Lee Forum" or where ever it actually is. Right now redirects have a blue arrow to indicate "Redirect" but no info on where it's actually located.
Another awesome feature would be to include a 2nd and if needed 3rd breadcrumbs in the thread back to the redirected forums. I'm not sure the best way to accomplish this task, but, it seems like a feature this type of redirect would require.
