I moved a topic from Ask The Expert to Off Topic, but accidentally left a shadow topic -- sorry. How do I remove the shadow?

I don't think you can. If you delete the shadow topic, it will delete the shadowing topic as well. In the future, just remember not to create the shadows..

Dangit, that's twice I've done that! Both times I hit Enter and then immediately went "D'oh!"

Alas.

That checkbox for the shadow forum should be OFF by default, darnit! :)

Actually, you can just delete the shadow by going to the forum the shadow topic is in and clicking the "moderate this forum" link way at the bottom-right of the page. This gives you a list of the threads in the forum with a checkbox for each one ... check the shadow and click the "delete" button at the bottom.
