Default Access to change thread title in B/S section

I would really appreciate if it was possible to change thread title in the B/S Section. I know we can contact mods, but I am sure they got better thing to do than changing title.

It's been suggested many many times and the answer has been that they won't do it.

The reasoning is that someone could easily change the price or availability of something and potentially scam or rip them off, this is why it requires a moderator to change the title

^ Was the initial reasoning that the mods didn't want us looking into adding that ability.

As it stands, thread title changes are actually tracked as edits to the thread and thus we have a record of the changes. Part of the problem lies in the fact that editing thread titles is a universal feature and for obvious reasons we don't want to allow anyone to be able to edit any titles as they please or edit outside of certain forum sections.

I have received the go ahead to look into adding this feature for the BST section, but can't promise anything as it is not a natively supported feature of vbulletin ( [rant] sometimes I wonder who the actual designers are of the vbulletin and what world they come from - clearly they don't use forums like majority of the rest of the population [/rant] )
