    Is it possible to get the feature on these forums where the thread starter in any thread gets a bold title under their name?

    example

    A lot of forums use it so clearly it serves a purpose ;)

    I find it useful in longer threads or when the a thread has gotten off topic but it's also handy for giving +rep in threads you enjoy. There's not a lot of threads spanning months or years on HH so it wouldn't be as useful but it would be nifty to have nonetheless.

    Craig, can you see about adding a hyperlink to "Thread Starter" under peoples names that plays the Prodigy's Firestarter when you click it too? :)

    I saw a "thread starter" on one of the threads today morning , maybe craig gave it a try.
    Oh , it now appears beside the post number , it was appearing under the username before.

    it's next to the post number on the right side of the screen. it's not under the OP's name like in the picture that the OP (OmegaRed in this thread's case) put up.
