Dear MNHQ - I know we already have the option to do this through customising our preferences, but since a lot of people don't know that, would it be do-able to have it so that the OP's posts are automatically highlighted throughout the threads they start?
That way everyone would be able to see updates, "dripfeeds"/additional info, responses from the OP etc. much more easily and it might save a lot of the inappropriate responses from people who don't RTFT.
The irony is that I like the simple look of the app and in general I think it works quite well, but it's clearly missing key features from the website! I wonder if you can highlight your/OP posts on the mobile site? Hmm..
greenhill rest your finger on the word (or at re beginning of the section you want to c & p) for a few secs- you should then see some options appear: select, select all, paste. Tap select and the word will appear between blue markers. Rest your finger on a marker and drag it to select the entire section you want to c & p. Then you'll get the option to cut, copy etc. Tap the relevant option. Then tap where you want to paste the copied section. You can also love the cursor in this way (eg to correct one letter rather than retyping the word): a little thing like a magnifying glass will appear with the cursor in it.
Tallulah mobile has yours and op's posts highlighted.
Tribpot - if the OP highlighting carried on when a poster namechanges, it could 'out' someone who had namechanged for a sensitive thread - anyone who saw both threads would realise who they were..
The highlight own posts does carry on through namechanges - I have at least 3 different names on the first Empty Nest thread and they are all highlighted (not sock puppetting, by the way, it's just that the thread lasted 7 years...)
