When un-expiring threads messages are about expiring

When I expired my hot deals thread everything looked fine. When I needed to un-expire it I clicked on the same symbol at the bottom of the OP. The message popped up if I want to expire this thread. I thought it was weird. How do I un-expire? What could happen, it's already expired and I pressed Yes. I was greeted with a message "You successfully expired this thread" and the thread was moved back to Hot Deals, so un-expired.

Just wanted to let mods know that the messaging is wrong in that part of forums.

When we first designed this system, it was meant to be used one-way only (e.g. Hot Deals to Expired Hot Deals, Freebies to Expired Freebies, etc.). Afterwards we realized that it could also be useful to "un-expire" things so we turned it on for the expired forums as well.

But yes, the messaging is wrong and can be confusing to those who aren't used to it. Hopefully we'll be able to fix that in a future site update.
