    Why this afternoon, is it suddenly not displaying who started a thread?
    I think this is more important to know than who posted in it last.

    I've purposely removed it to visually open-up the forum thread list. I think it looks tidier this way.

    If enough people think it's important to show the thread starter, I'll reinstate it, no problem.

    could we not display it in a separate column to the thread title, or in the same column as the most recent poster?

    Could have done with a 'not bothered' option really...

    I'm not bothered, but I think as I generally didn't notice who started the thread, I won't miss it...

    well the column header still says "Thread / Thread Starter" so we probably want to change that aswell if we're leaving the thread starter off...

    I may be able to tweak the templates to show the author in a separate column. Let me see ...

    That would be good. I like to see who has started a thread.
