    It also helps your case that Valve has completely thrown around their patching schedule. For that reason, I'm gonna fix the title to be just an ambiguous 'Patch Anticipation Station', so that it can keep on running as well. At least until we either completely figure out their new patching schedule, or until I get overruled by the other mods. Should that be the case, I fully support their decision, and my statements here won't protect this thread or any future PAS's from being closed.
    So now we have one (presumably) ever-running PAS no matter if the patch was deployed or not? Well that makes sense, considering nowadays a new PAS is created as soon as the old one is closed. With the old system though it was easier to track patch progression: assuming a non-cosmetic content is released in near future, it will be confusing for newcomers to see "Waiting for LC" on the first pages. Anyways, works for me. add it to sticky

      It should be possible for the thread creator to keep editing the title to add [4 weeks without patch] [100 weeks without hero] to it?

          Didn't find this option for the threads I created. But I was never good at forum tools.

              Welp, turns out it doesn't work any more. You used to be able to double-click on a thread's name to change it.

                you cant edit a thread title as "normal" member

                only with higher "ranks" you can do that :P

                    Negative. While the forum rules usually are somewhat less enforced in here, you'll still be shut down if you get out of hand and we get too may reports. Produce too much toxicity, and the thread will get closed. Then there is also the next bit:

                    Depends on how Valve imagines the release schedule now. For now, we can adhere to 'Thread persists through smaller patches, gets recreated for bigger patches'. I mean, let's be real here. Do you really deem yesterday's patch to be reason enough to recreate a PAS?

                    It drowned.

                      One day there WILL be a community forum, and every PAS-flamer will get a "Legendary" status. Mods and core testers will be "Arcana", devs will be "Immortal" and Icefrog will be the "Vintage Immortal" aka Timebreaker.

                      It became a huge GIF pool for forum users to fill.

                      Ironically, the PAS is actually one of the least toxic threads in Misc and Community sections. As for the second part - no I don't, which is why I said I`m fine with this decision.
