Why not just edit the opening post? It's not like you don't have the ability to do this. Not sure about the reasoning. You are throwing away all the history of this thread.
I see the new thread is opened by a different newbie account too, why not with the FACTOM account? Now you can't use pictures/logo's in the new thread. Seems like a very strange decision.
The old thread was created by Factom Inc. Since Milestone 3 was released where Authority Node Operators now provide the infrastructure to decentralize the Protocol, the Factom Protocol has become one of the most decentralized blockchain projects in existence. It's important that decentralization is not just technical, however. If a single entity controlled important communication mediums like this one, that would be problematic. As such, in the spirit of decentralization, this login is shared among the entire Factom Protocol Marketing Committee
which Factom Inc (which is now an ANO) is also a part of. While we may have been able to take over the Factom Inc account, there's a variety of reasons we chose not to do that such as then we'd have access to their private communications which isn't fair.
Once this account becomes more established, we'll add graphics.
The old thread is linked in the second sentence of the new thread so the history of this one won't be lost to anyone who wants to explore it.
