Moved threads should clearly say "Moved," not "N/A"

    Note this moved thread:
    http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...udvar-hazy-museum-post-your-photos-here.3449/
    At the original location of the thread, in the Other U.S. Destinations forum, there's a curved blue arrow to note that the thread has moved, and in tiny letters in the Last Message column is the notation "N/A."

    Any chance that "N/A" could be changed to "Moved" to better explain the situation? Right now, when confronted with the moved thread in the original location, it looks like something's wrong or corrupted.

    I notice that, and it is misleading.
    On the other hand, the link in my photo thread list was not broken when it moved- so that means links are to the thread themselves, without the path hard coded into the link.

    we're trying several different options when threads are requested to be moved to a different forum by the member starting the thread. Obviously you are referring to something embedded in the technology. We have three choices: 1) moved with no notice; 2) move with notice for X days, months; 3) move with permanent forward.
    Again, these are moves initiated by the member themselves. Obviously with no notice, this would not be a problem. I'll need to look at the "n/a" as i have not come across it. Good catch, something we can look at during beta to see if there are options, or at least give feedback to the software developer. Thanks.
