Another way to look at splitting threads: instead of a "moderator only" feature, it's available to all
Just start a new thread on the "subtopic", post reference links in the old and new threads if you want and you're off to the races.
Be sure that it really is a distinct topic though, or the new thread might get locked itself, which may leave you sitting in the corner rocking back
When in doubt, it never hurts to ask a mod. Just send a U2U or hit the Suggestion button.
I mean hey, we like working with threads too.
