Default advanced edit button for BST section

I would like to change the title of my add in the BST section, but for some reason it still shows the same thread title after I edit it. Would adding an advanced edit button fix this?
For example when you look at my add in the BST section it shows FS: Intel Core i7 965 Extreme. But when you open the thread the title you see : slugbug's for sale list.

I've of two minds on this WRT the buy/sell thread.

On one hand, yes it does make sense to allow members to change their titles as required when they get new stuff to sell. OTOH, what's to stop somebody (not our regulars) from posting one thing, mailing a different thing to the purchaser, and then changing the title to reflect this new reality......

Unfortunately, neither a post count requirement, nor a time-on-site requirement are a guarantee of good buy/sell practices. I believe the last two major issues were from members who had fairly high post counts, and had been around for at least 3 months.

Might not be possible with the current technology used for the forum, but an easily visible 'change log' for the titles might work. That way, if a thread title is changed, we will know about it easily, especially if we get ripped off. We can already edit the text of our posts, so there is still an opportunity to do a post switch from what may be shipped.

However, while it is true that it would be nice to change thread titles ourselves, the I am sure the mods know what they are getting into when accepting the 'job'. The only way they would have a right to complain IMO, is if someone were excessive in thread title change requests. For these people, if they had the right to change the title themselves, the rest of the community would complain about all the constant changes too. (ie. 'I thought this was a new thread, but it seems I have read through this thread three times today,because you won't stop renaming it' etc.)

I can't speak for the other mods, but I for one don't mind changing titles. It only takes a minute or so, and it's not like we get 50 a day.... :)
