Merging Threads?

  1. Recently, two threads of the similar titles but that were pretty different in overall discussion were merged. The reason given was that there were "too many" of that topics threads on the BB, even though there really were only a couple. The merged Thread also was difficult to follow because of the different discussions that were merged into one another.

    What exactly merits a "merging"? There are several "Florida payrates" at various times, repeated and duplicate "I want to try Travel Nursing", and a couple "ADN vs BSN", with much more similar subject matter than the threads that were merged. Why do they not also merit merging?

    Just wondering.

    You will always find quicker results by either asking the person (mod) who was talking to you in the first place or posting your question in the feedback forum with specific links to the thread(s)

    We don't do it all that often because it is a bit technically tricky - especially if there are more than just a couple of responses.
