Didn't Neowin used to have it so the first post was always at the top of the page?

What you're talking about is the Linear+ view. I believe it was removed in IP.Board 3.1 (Neowin uses 3.2.3).

i still miss that feature, though not many people used it and it was a little buggy, it was nice for long support threads and the like

Aye, IP Board got rid of a few decent features such as Linear+ the ability to change the number of posts per page etc. such a shame as I find it a lot harder to read 4 pages of 10 than 1 page of 40 :s

I'd suggest making the background colour brighter so that it's more visible, like the green colour behind the page number. I think it's a useful feature, especially in the support forums.

Too much distraction. Its great the way it is.

I do note that it may need some work.

If I put a reply, in the "Quick Reply" area, it is posted but the OP does not appear beside my name until I ctrl+F5

You already know you are the OP, so everyone else won't have that problem ;)

Neowin at it's finest: someone asked something yesterday, Timan implemented today and everybody is testing now. Faster than that could not be possible i say :)

now back to the topic: i like it but could be better: the "OP" can be confusing in such a way that it almost blends with the nick; maybe a color change is enough? like the bar where the OP's name could have a diferent color?
