Any chance we could have a 'thread started by..' column in active convos?

Please? I usually use the active convo page instead of the actual topic pages and would like a 'thread started by..' column like the other pages do.
Pleeaase? <wheedle>

Conflugenglugen Tue 30-Aug-11 12:37:14

Yes, I second that request - puhleeeeze! smile

VelvetSnow Tue 30-Aug-11 12:38:59

I agree.

Itsjustafleshwound Tue 30-Aug-11 12:42:06

It would be a useful feature

WhatFreshHellIsThis Tue 30-Aug-11 12:44:27

I would also like posts by the OP to be a different colour, so you can scan for updates nice and easily. (and moon on a stick, too, please grin)

What fresh you can change your settings so that your own and OP posts are highlighted (in different colours)

giyadas Tue 30-Aug-11 12:46:11

you can do that already if you go into your settings WhatFreshHellIsThis. You can even choose the colour I think.
Moon on a stick is pending grin

ConstanceNoring Tue 30-Aug-11 12:47:30

whatfresh you can already do this wink

Yes the 'thread started by' would be really useful when used in conjunction with the hide button grin

<ponders what colour moon would I like>

Pinot Tue 30-Aug-11 13:58:37

WhatFreshHellIsThis Tue 30-Aug-11 14:08:29

oh god, really? All this time wasted reading every single post when all I wanted was to find out what happened.

Darn it.

Thank you for putting me straight! <<rushes off to fiddle with settings>>

Olivia shock

I feel a fool.

Pinot Tue 30-Aug-11 18:57:31

Mine doesn't work. I've changed the setting. Maybe I have to log off and on...

giyadas Tue 30-Aug-11 18:59:41

blush blush blush
thank you!

Pinot Tue 30-Aug-11 19:00:05

Right, it works in Threads list but not in Active. Which is what the OP asked for.

Who's the fool now eh eh eh? wink grin <blows kiss>

giyadas Tue 30-Aug-11 19:00:42

and the moon on a stick?
<pushes luck>

giyadas Tue 30-Aug-11 19:01:12

confused

GilbonzoTheSecretPsych0Duck Tue 30-Aug-11 19:01:25

I have it set up but it only shows in each topic - not active convos. I may have dreamed this or taken too many drugs or drunk too much but I seem to remember a thread about this before and Tech guy (I'm shit with names) said that it wouldn't work in active but they would think about doing it some time maybe possibly perhaps.

Pinot Tue 30-Aug-11 19:03:00

<waves to Gilby>

giyadas Tue 30-Aug-11 19:05:15

so, I've ticked the 'started by' box and I'm using MN new, and it doesn't work on active convos.
shock I've been fobbed off sad
