Our new software included a few features designed to make a life a little easier on our Moderator team, too, since we all know how hard they often work. Unfortunately, that wasn't one of them, nor is it likely to be any time soon.
When they are forced to move a thread, Parker, they have absolutely no idea what the new URL is going to be. Athena doesn't even know until she gets a file lock, by which time the Moderator is already being forwarded to their next assignment. They would have to go to the destination forum, open the thread, copy the new URL, return to the source forum, unlock the thread, add or edit the link, and finally relock the thread. Nope, ain't gonna happen too soon.
