As a developer and regular forumer, it is currently too hard to tell who is the Original Poster of a topic.
I regularly visit, read, and comment on a lot of posts, and with the current system, it is currently too much of an inconvenience to tell who is the Original Poster of a topic.
Let’s say you want to reply to the original poster directly under a really long topic, the only way you can find out who is the OP is by either scrolling all the way to the top, or by clicking the title. The title clicking part is easy, but then you have to remember what page number you were on if you forget what you were replying about, then you have to scroll/drag the slider all the way back down there.
I find this as an inconvenience because you should just be able to see the OP’s name highlighted in the comment section then reply, which would be much easier.
Im guessing due to the lack of demand for such feature, and it’s really simple for users to add in themselves. Some users might not want the OP to be flaired. If this is added natively it shou;d probably be an option
