Is there something that can be done to the code that Splits Topics to fix all the broken links it leaves behind?
I see this in the list of notifications when I hover my avatar. If someone quoted me or liked my reply and then that was part of some entries that got split to another topic, then the link in my notifications takes me to the original thread where it says “Split to xxxx”.
I don’t like topics being split at all, especially if the reply was long and took awhile to construct (taking into account all the context of the conversation). It is very disorienting for both halves of the conversation. It is hard to continue either half. It is especially difficult if you don’t come back very often.
What if the Split didn’t actually delete from the original? Maybe make them disabled, but still there?
Or maybe don’t ever split topics?
