For the record, you don't need to ask @Cyril Cohen I found how you can move a stream to another topic.

you mean a topic to another stream? how?

is it available only to us admins or to any user?

How do I know?

@Christian Doczkal are you still around can you tell us?

I cannot do it so I guess it's just you.

Thanks :)

But users can still modify the topic of a given message, or not?

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (May 08 2020 at 14:07):

I think so

I think just for their messages though, @Théo Winterhalter can you confirm ?

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (May 08 2020 at 14:08):

do you have a little pen next to "Miscellaneous >Stream creation and naming policy [HERE]" ?

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (May 08 2020 at 14:08):

Yes I can change the topic when answering but I think it just will create a separate topic.

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (May 08 2020 at 14:08):

No I just have the bell to mute.

And for your own message, you should also have a little pen icon, you should be able to edit your own message

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (May 08 2020 at 14:09):

Yep

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (May 08 2020 at 14:09):

an can you modify your own topic ?

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (May 08 2020 at 14:10):

Seems I can, and it affects also answers but then they are considered a different topic.

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (May 08 2020 at 14:10):

not only your own then, but everyone would subsequently replied to you....

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (May 08 2020 at 14:11):

Yes, and I can add it back by editing the subject again.

Which, I may add, is really confusing if one is looking at this branched off topic when it disappears ;)

It seems that the old names remain on the left with just no messages.

On thing I keep noticing, renaming a stream seems to unmute it for everyone (at least I have just seen a stream getting renamed several times, and each time I had to mute it again).

view this post on Zulip Théo Zimmermann (Jun 04 2020 at 09:42):

Do you mean stream or topics?

view this post on Zulip Théo Zimmermann (Jun 04 2020 at 09:43):

I suppose you mean topics and this is most inconvenient since this happens often!

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (Jun 04 2020 at 09:43):

Yes I meant topics sorry.

view this post on Zulip Théo Zimmermann (Jun 04 2020 at 09:43):

@Cyril Cohen Maybe worth an issue report to Zulip. WDYT?

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (Jun 04 2020 at 15:18):

Sure

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (Jun 04 2020 at 15:22):

I think this is a side effect of a feature though... if you mute a topic and someone takes a message out of it by renaming its topic, you should be able to see it "unmuted". I guess the problem occurred when one renamed an entire topic (which should seldom happen). Which is the guilty topic?

view this post on Zulip Théo Winterhalter (Jun 04 2020 at 15:35):

It was the "Windows build issue" which I think go renamed twice.

view this post on Zulip Cyril Cohen (Jun 04 2020 at 15:37):

I submitted to zulip/zulip#15210 anyway, we'll see to which of a feature or bug this pertains.

Could someone rename "Fiat-crypto" to either "Fiat-Crypto" or "fiat-crypto" (whichever is more in line with the current conventions), or tell me how to rename it?
