If a topic has been posted in a board that does not relate to the subject, you can move the topic to a more appropriate board. To move a topic:

Go to the thread that will be moved and click on the button that Says "Move Topic". Upon clicking the button, you'll see a page with several options and several different places and ways to move your topic. If you'd like to Post a redirection topic, check the box that says "Post a redirection topic."

A redirection Topic includes (by default) the original name of the thread along with a link to the Board it was moved to and a link to the newly moved topic. By default, redirection topics are locked. If you'd like to change the name of thethread that is being moved, check the box next to "Change the topic's subject." You'll then see a field where you can enter a new subject. Doing that, you can also opt to make all of the posts' subjects match that of the new subject by checking the box next to "Change every message's subject." Now all you have left to do is select the Board to move the Topic to and then click on the button that says "Move Topic".

Mass Moving Topics If you run into a case where there are a bunch of topics you would like to move out of a board you can mass move topics from one board to another board, by going to the message index of a board and using quick-moderation.

Before you're able to move multiple topics at the same time, you'll have to enable checkboxes. Follow the directions below to enable checkboxes.

Profile > Look and Layout Preferences

To the right of "Show quick-moderation on Message index as", you'll see a drop-down box. Click on that box and click on the option that says "checkboxes."

Now go enter a board and you will see checkboxes to the right of every topic. Check the boxes for the topics you wish to move and then go down to the bottom of the page where you see a dropdown. Select "Move Selected To" and in the next dropdown select the board you wish to move the topics to.
