> Redirecting just the original post kills the thread, at least it has in the past. Do you expect people who post before you redirect just the first post in the thread to then go back a redirect their threads ?
Just one post without those before or after it, you mean? Now I'm not saying this is necessarily the best way to do it, but the way I do it, I only repost a bunch of posts when I'm deleting them. If I'm leaving them there, I'll just repost one, usually the latest one.
Is your concern that people on the new board might miss out on other posts in the original thread? The way it works now, the the first post on the new board automatically includes a link to the post on the original board that it's a copy of, so it's easy to get from the new thread back to the original thread.
No, I don't expect anyone else to do anything. But if they wanted to, that would be fine...
