I have never opened a thread before as I'm a user. Say I found a mod on XDA from a different model of a HTC phone/different carrier an the thread is like 2 years old. As I tried this on 4.4.2 vzw an it did work. Can I open a thread under vzw thread so other vzw user can see how? If I can do I just open a thread with the url to the older thread stated above. Or can I open a thread an make sure to post where I got this an that I deserve zero credit? If someone could reply it would be cool as it is very useful..

Just make the thread in general and put in parentheses what it is eg. mod, info, etc. Since you're just linking to something I wouldn't do it in development.

It is a code edit that is useful for people on any of santods full stock Roms. If I just link the old thread it has directions for AT&T HTC phone or is it alright if I reword them so it makes sense to vzw users? I'm only asking cause I see how it isn't kind to just take credit for what someone else shared somewhere else on XDA. I appreciate you responding.

Yeah just start a thread in general. That isn't really a dev thing. Make sure to link back to the original op and have credits to the original creator. If you're really concerned shoot him a pm and ask if he's cool with it.

Ok I'm clear on now what to do. As I agree it's not a dev thing. I'm going to post it in general. Just wondering I see a bunch of mods/edits in apps an themes. Do people open threads there if they create it them selfs. I have no more questions after these lol.

I suppose you could put it there. The mods will move it where they think it should be.
