This icon would only apply to the person who started the actual thread and every time that person posts a response in that thread, there will be an icon say at the top right hand side of his/her responses.
This would allow people to see instantly the OP still has issues/questions needs attention.....this would help to focus on the actual issues rather than responses being off-subject.....equally strong, there is a limit to what the OP can accept as everyone is different.....it is especially hard to see who the thread starter is when we are reading a long thread and among these mulitiple pages.....appreciating that when there is a debate thread, this would not apply as it is open to all.
I quite like the idea, but If it was optional (i.e. it could be turned off or on) it may be more useful - if able to be implemented - as there are threads where the OP is not needed to be the main focus of responses such as general interest threads.
