Merged Topic Location

Repro steps.

  1. Find an old topic.
  2. Select only the topic and merge to another topic. (Make sure the last post of the 2nd topic is newer than the 1st.)
  3. Merge.
  4. It goes to the very bottom, destroying the chronological order.

This is the way it has always worked, and is in no way a bug. You can’t willy-nilly merge a bunch of random posts in date order, that would be super confusing. They retain proper order from the topic they arrived from.
