Joining Old Orphaned Posts to the Main Threads

(Pavol Vaskovic) #1

Researching history of certain topics discussed on swift evolution I sometimes come across orphaned posts that were not properly joined to the main thread during the mailing list import.

How about we use this thread to alert @forum_admins of their existence, so that they can join them together?

I've set this post to be a wiki, so that anybody can edit it and we don't grow a useless old laundry list. To add an item, simply select Edit and fill the table below. Once merged, the admins will simply delete the row. You can see the history by clicking the green edit icon in the top right corner of the post.

Note: when linking to threads with long titles, you can just strip the SEO title from the URL and use a short URL form: https://forums.swift.org/t/####

These are all in the #evolution:discuss category, while I'm guessing the real main thread is the initial posit(?) from #evolution:announce: [Review] SE-0089: Replace protocol<P1, P2> syntax with Any<P1, P2> … in the end I think this should all be together under the #evolution:proposal-reviews :man_shrugging:

@sam.saffron is there a way to re-join threads?

Yes, if you select the posts you can then move them to a different topic. Look at the admin topic wrench for "select posts..."

I'll start working through these.
