Hello,

I just noticed something when I was replying to a post that someone else posted. The subject line from the original post wasn't remembered, in my reply, I had to either copy and paste the original or I had to write my our subject, or leave it blank..

Usually it will take the subject post and do a "Re: subject" or keep the original subject for the post. Is this done on purpose or is this a bug?

Write now, I don't see it being much of a problem, but if you start to offer RSS feeds for topics it might be nice to see the subjects in the feeds, and I am pretty sure most people won't add the subject on their own, so it will be blank most of the time..

Thanks,
Ken

I decided to do this way. From my point of view, most of the time you wont need to specify a subject to the topic replies, since most of the time the discussion will be focus on the subject.
However, there are situations where a post can deflect from the main discussion, where then a diferent subject may help... On other situations, leave it blank shouln'd be reason to concern about.

RSS files take the topics, which necessarily must have a subject, and not the topic posts.

But, anyway, for me is trivial to bring the original subject as default..

It doesn't matter to me which way it works, I just wanted to make sure this was a feature and not a bug . As long as it is working the way you want it to work, I see no problem.

Thanks for the reply..
