Am I the only one who think that adds no usefull info? The first post is the OP, by the time you scroll back far enough to see the O.P. text you figured out that's the first post already.

RE: Thread starter tag
That's what I figured.  By the time you've scrolled up to look for a faint tag that may or may not be there on any given page of a thread, you might as well have just clicked on "First"

It was a much more constructive suggestion to have it in brackets after the thread title.

Obviously it's not useful in the first post (it's still displayed just for consistency/simplicity), but what about replies?

I don't think it would be clear what the thing in brackets is (or whether it's actually part of the subject)... =p

What about them? I'm probably missing something obvious here, but I don't get it at all.

It's intended to help us see who started the thread, especially when something's 4 or 5 pages into a discussion, by highlighting each of their posts with the "O.P." thing.  My point is though that by the time you've scrolled up looking for an almost invisible tag, you might as well have just clicked "First" at the bottom to be taken to the first post to see who started it, as it'd be much quicker.

The whole point of it was to avoid having to go back to the first post, so it's a time saving issue?  In which case the indicator needs to be clearer and needs to be always visible, not just visible on the pages on which the OP has replied?

Perhaps the bracket thing isn't the best idea....but there has to be some way of making it more obvious and having it show up regardless of the OP having made replies?

Ah, didn't notice each of the posts by the user who did the OP was highlighted. That does make it useful. But I agree, more noticeable without getting annoying would be nice.

RE: Thread starter tag
can someone post a version of the background colour changer script, that detects the "O.P." instead of making another request?
Cheers
