Add "OP" to user in the thread he started...

Recommended Posts

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 ;)

Seeing "OP" next to my name is a little disconcerning.......

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?

Clear your cache if it looks like the user name, should be in a label of sorts.

Aslo just a heads up to users using themes that are not the default (darkside...), these themes arn't supported so not everything is visible on these themes.

Im not sure if everyone has that problem or not. Maybe quick replies are not seen with OP until you Ctrl+F5. Thats why Im commenting on it :)

Alright, I added something just to see how this works out. So it is possible to do it without any modifications. Will see what Neobond thinks of the idea, and if he's no fan, will remove it. Might be confusing to users so don't know myself.

I like it.

I welcome the change, although the icon is a little off in its current implementation (as of writing this).

Users of a tech forum confused by such a graphic on a poster's name should really consider whether their membership has anything to do with what they are good at.

Not saying only advanced computer users join us, but seriously, this is a tech forum and average peeps around here probably have enough of logical thinking to get a clue what it means.

I think it's a great idea.

But i fear that when warwagon and turion will see OP right beside their name in the joke forum they might actually think they are over powered.

Sweet. It looks great on the Darkside theme. Not too flashy, just enough to be an indicator. Good job!

I believe that at the top of each thread it says who started the topic.

It's still a pretty good idea mind you.

edit: Seems it was added without me noticing. I'll check it out later. Mobile site didn't display how many pages the thread had (or I didn't see it).

Maybe it could be put in brackets or something, as it is the OP looks like it is part of the username..

As said a couple times, you just need to refresh/clear your cache. It's actually more like a badge.

Timan I'm curious as to how this was done, care to pm the changes needed to accomplish this?

I like this a lot! Didn't realise just how useful it was until I notice I'm not having to open the first page in a new tab anymore to remind myself who started the thread. Thanks, Timan. (And FWIW, I use Darkside and I think it looks fine. (Y) )
