When a thread gets moved wouldn't it be helpful to know where it was moved to??

I don't understand this. Threads are often moved to other topics by the moderators. However, as far as I can tell, we never get any indication letting us know where it was moved to. I can't find them. Any suggestions?

First of all, THIS IS IN THE WRONG FORUM, GENIUS.

Second, they still appear in the forum as "Moved: Whatever the topic of the thread was," so you can still find them. On EYKIW, there's "Moved: Which band would you prefer to support U2," for instance.

Then when you click on the thread, you get a little trail of breadcrumbs at the top of the page. Continuing the example, "U2 Feedback » Your Blue Room » U2 Vertigo Tour Central 2004 / 2005 / 2006 » General Tour Discussions » Which band would you prefer to support U2." So it's really obvious.

Yes, indeed. You do have a marvelous grasp of the obvious. Thank you for your kind words.

I find it ironic that this thread will be moved.

Poor Knuckle! They don't really bite. They're quite nice when you get to know them - honest!

Maybe this is why I was a lurker for so long. . .no wait, it was because I was stuck on Zootopia (first version).

Unfortunately the only way to find your post by searching for it, is to be a paid member, and for $12, do I even get a useless key chain?

There is a trail, as mentioned by typhoon, for moved threads. If the thread is merged with another one, it can be difficult to find. Sometimes the word "merged" is at the start and sometimes its not. Sometimes the thread title contains the title you are looking for sometimes it doesnt.

The best solution I have found is to google this site. Type "interference" and the username of someone who has posted in the thread eg you, and some of the words from anywhere in the thread and google it.

Yes, as someone said above... If a thread is Moved, simply click on the thread name still exisiting in its original place and it will automatically forward you to its new location.

When someone bites me - I generally have a bad habit of biting them back, twice as hard.
