As you get into a long thread, especially multi-page ones, it's sometimes hard to keep track of who the original poster was. So, how about an OP highlight or icon?

(File under "Features I'd like to see sometime in the future when Brett or others have time to get under the hood.")

What if the OP doesn't contribute to the remainder of the thread after the initial post? ;)
Still, I agree, this would be a neat little feature. Scrolling or paging would save a lot of time, energy, ... and bandwidth.

That's actually a situation I'd like to use it, scan a page and see if the OP is still involved at all.

Ahhhh! Never thought of it that way. Another good reason for the feature.

Well, consider this the official petition. I believe the moderator of this forum will be certain to pass along the feature request to the appropriate authority.
