Windows 7: OP ID?

OP ID?

currently there seems no OP identification in threads except you read the first post - how about making OP postings better identifiable in long running threads?

OP ID? Could you explain that for me, I'm no good with the acronyms.

Sounds like a good idea to me, you will have to speak with John, and see if he will do
anything about it .

IMO the system is fine. Check this image:
OP ID?-op-id.png

Under the title you see the name of the OP. If you click the title (2), you are redirected to his / her original post i.e. the first post of the thread. If you click the small yellow sign (1) in beginning of the title, you are redirected to first unread post assuming you have already visited this thread, or to the first post if the thread is new to you. Clicking the last poster (3) brings you to the last post of the thread.

I can not see how there could be more information?

Sounds like more queries for the servers and if so he'll probably not do it.

I think he means that as you read down through the threads, sometimes it is hard to see who actually started the thread in the first place, without going back to the first page to see the first post.

John, who?
Sorry I am totally uninformed about the administration here..

To make the OP identifiable in a long running thread can be as simple as changing the username font colour/bold etc something. It would help alot.

I am sure he finds this thread and maybe likes the idea in some way!

I like the idea. I have been involved in many long threads.
