Put a indicator in the title that indicates the thread is the result of two or more threads.

For example: Add #M the title to indicate merged.

I don't see why that's needed. It's all the same topic....so what if two threads were merged?

Right now an in thread message is added as a post which is pretty useless. With the indicator in the title, it alerts everyone.

I'm assuming the poster who's thread was 'erased' and merged with another is notified. I really can't see that it makes any difference to anyone but that poster...?

Provides coherence.

I hate dupe threads, but when there are two or more, they often take off in different directions after a few pages. I'd appreciate seeing "(merged)."

The authors are supposed to get a merged thread PM.
