Currently you can change the author of a resource but if there's an attached discussion, the thread starter and the author of the first post stays the same. I think these three things should be connected. If you change the owner of the resource, they should be able to edit the thread and the first post (with permission obviously). Use Case: When I took over Syndol's add-ons, the resources were transferred to me. A few months later his account was deleted (per request), which makes it seem as if all these threads were started by an inactive member and possibly looks bad for the resource even though it's active. It also (which is the part I care more about) makes it so the new resource owner can't add thread tags .
