    Not sure if this should be under site migration or site support.

    But editing threadmarks is a bit of a bitch. I like them, but the nesting and other such options are hard to utilize on mobile, and they're not much easier on desktop. The drag and drop functionality doesn't have precision where if I wanted to drop one of the nested items outside of the nest it's just not allowed, have to do some serious finagling.

    Another thing is visibility. I can't see that shit at all if I don't have color blind mode off, which my desktop lacks. So I cannot differentiate the colors. Black and white it works fine.

    Also, would it be possible to request being able to edit threadmark names after the fact. I'd find it useful, and I'm sure other people would to so we don't have to go bug a mod or an admin to do it.

    I'm a little hesitant to make large scale changes to the threadmark UI -- it makes it harder to keep up to date later. There might be some simple changes we can make to make it more usable on mobile though, so I'll mess with it. I'll also see what we can do about visibility though, since in edit mode it's really terrible.

    As for editing threadmark names, you just have to click the "Threadmark" button on the post in question. There's no batch editing of threadmark names.

    Huh, so that's how you do it. Makes total sense.

    Good to know, thanks. I'll be sure to push any generally useful changes upstream.
    Yeah, as Jon said, we do purge inactive accounts every so often. With 1 post you should generally be safe.
