No. I think the ability to edit your own titles within some time after the publication is already enough for typos etc.. giving the mods unlimited access to titles is just asking for abuse, transparent abuse maybe, but still. If we want to prevent agenda driven moderation, providing redundant exploitable functions is probably a bad idea.

Agreed, being able to ninja edit a title makes sense. We've all written up a post, clicked submit and realized the title is screwed up. A time limit should be imposed to prevent trolling through the titles happening though. I can already see a title being changed to "Hitler did nothing wrong" after it gets +500.

Same issue with a mod editing titles. Mods could too easily shape the apparent mindset of voat by changing titles to match their own agenda by changing titles once they get popular, or wrecking them before they even get traction.
