Moved thread, last poster.

That thread that was moved in the Classified Section says the last poster is n/a, even though I replied prior to the move.

Also, regarding moving threads - I think it might be a nice idea for an automated PM to be sent to the author informing them that there thread has been moved?

"The moderation team has moved your thread (xxxthreadnamexxx) to a more appropriate section. The new url is: xxxnewurlxxx"

? Just thinking outloud.

If the moderators want people to know they moved it they can have a shadow thread stay. If they don't want them to know then they don't leave a shadow. I don't like the automated idea at all.

The moment we move a thread, we set that to 'n/a' since after that, there is no trace back to where the thread was moving from, so there is no way to know about the last poster.
