If you pick a thread and then scroll to the bottom of the page you will see the Quick-mod tools list. Click on the down arrow on the right side of the field to see all of the options.

1. Lock topic - Click Go and you will be asked "Are you sure you want to lock this topic?"; click Yes and the topic is locked.

2. Unlock topic - same as lock topic except you pick the Unlock topic option.

3. Delete topic - this option should not be used; instead select Move Topic and move it to one of the Archive forums

4. Move topic - click this option and then you will be presented with options on where to move; make sure to uncheck the "Leave shadow topic in place" checkbox; then click on the list of forums and select the appropriate forum; and then click Yes on the "Are you sure you want to move the topic into a new forum?"

5. Merge topic - click this option on the thread you want to add to the bottom of another thread; you will taken to a list of threads in the same forum that the thread you selected is; if that is where the other thread is, look for it and click on the "Select for merge" link above the thread title; if the other thread is in another forum, click on the list of forums and change to the appropriate forum and click on "Select for merge" above the other thread you want to merge with


there are more options and those details will be added here later, but these are the main ones that get used

Wow, Keneikirk! Thanks for doing this. I always thought there should be a tutorial for new mods. When I first became a mod, it was all trial and error, trying to figure everything out. How nice to have stickies that the new mods can refer to! :D
