Date of First Post & OP repeater

A couple of suggestions.

On the front page of each forum, with the list of threads, we have the date/time of the last post to each thread. Is it possible to have the date of original post included, perhaps near the thread title. Gives us the choice to follow a whole thread, or pick up the latest only, puts some context into it.

Secondly, as we scroll down a thread, with input from many, sometimes adding their own similar experiences or issues, it is easy to lose track of the original issue, or to know when the OP comments. Sometimes an OP never returns. If the OP name was repeated next to the thread title, this would be useful.

Re: Date of First Post & OP repeater

For the second request (assuming you are using the website) - the OP comments all have a peach background. The other comments will be blue. (the bit where the username is, not the actual post text).

The original date next to a thread, we did have before. But it looked cluttered, so it was taken off again
