Visible Threadstarter

When viewing a thread, it is difficult to know/remember the OP (original poster) especially with the new scrolling style of thread posting format. So, when the OP responds, it is unclear that they are actually the OP.

Can moderators please add something to differentiate/make the follow-up postings of the OP standout? Most forums simply add the word threadstarter under the user name…something like that would be highly useful.

PLEASE, PLEASE consider!
Thank you for your hard work.

This is a known issue and is on the list of things to be addressed.

There is a list of things that are known issues in the original post of the long thread about the new forum.

Edit to add - here is a link to that thread:


Known issues are also copied and listed at the bottom of the FAQ.

Yes, we’re all eagerly awaiting the return of the “original poster” designation, once the bigger issues get resolved!

Until then, you can filter by poster. Filter by the OP to see only their posts.
