Does anyone know how to add the phrase (OLD) to an outdated thread?

Do the CHOW moderators have to do this or can the person who started the thread add it themselves? Thanks in advance!

    For the body of a post, once the editing period has ended (2 hours?) only the mods can make a change. For the title, only mods can change it, period.

      Actually, any user can change the title of their own thread by clicking on the title and editing it, within the 2 hour window that applies to editing the thread.

      To answer the OP, please flag the thread for us with a note to mark as [OLD] and we can do it.

      Who ever started the thread can edit the title I believe.

      Oh wait- I think that ability changed during the last rehab and you can only edit for a short period of time.

        Just to clarify -- you've only ever been able to edit the title within the same 2 hour window you can edit your post. After that, only the mods can make edits.
