When moving replies to an existing topic, the link is always to the first message in that topic

Is it a bug or by design?

People in our community are unhappy about this behaviour. If a lot of messages are moved, and a new reader of the oroginal topic wants to start reading the moved messages from the start, they can’t locate the starting point of the moved messages in the target topic.

When you say “link”, what do you mean? Screenshot?

I mean the link in the original topic that links to the other topic to which the messages were moved.

The link is under the message that says “30 topics were moved to the new/existing topic”.

What about the notification they get in their notifications area that indicates their posts were moved? Where does that link?
