Seeing as the new site is going to be rolled out at some point, I wanted to make a little suggestion/request. Could the OP of a thread be given a specific border? No idea if this would be difficult or well received, but I like that on Reddit the OP has a bold name. I think it would be especially useful for the new AMA threads.

I don't want some garish ting with OP plastered everywhere, just a subtle differentiation.

Member and Mod thoughts?

Yeah, that would be cool. Or some subtle way to tell the OP would be nice. Sometimes I read threads from back to front, as odd as that sounds

Oh, oh, this! Definitely this! The more people that reply to a thread, the more easily lost the identity of the OP is. I know someone's going to pipe up with "Dude, just recheck the OP", but when someone's on a reply roll, I doubt they're thinking of doing that. More likely thinking of getting their thoughts posted before the thoughts scatter.

I like the idea!

Good suggestion!

I support this idea. I don't always pay attention to Avatars, especially OP avatars in the thread, so sometimes it's hard for me to follow who says/supports what when I don't remember the OP name or Avatar.

Ha! I do that a lot. When you have a ton of pages and missed the middle it makes sense. I try to read at least the first 3-5 pages, a few in the middle and then the last 3. I agree subtle is key here. Even just a darker background for the OP would be nice. Just a little something.

100% agree...yes yes yes. I sometimes forget who the OP is and lose the relevance of the response, especially when the thread gets long and I come in late.

What's wrong with garish? We should have flashing lights, obnoxious music, and "congratulations...you've won"

notices like the advertisements on ATS. If it's a notification then BE NOTICED!!!!!

does it matter who the OP is ???? once you have actually read the OP [ a task I suspect many people skip ] - does it matter who a reply is from ?

PS - to locate OP contribution - click " posts in thread " below their name - PPS that works for any other thread contributer too

I think it works very well on the darktheme, I would try maybe a color for the light theme? maybe some dark orange, or a fine blue line, something other then grey. Like the nice green on the Dark theme.

A brilliant idea.
I too would love to see some form of visual notice that a person partaking in the thread is the thread starter. A simple little "OP" badge on the post would be great.

It's not very discernible in "go-light" mode.
