Any chance of adding a thread Creator column, say between the Topic and Views columns? I don't think there's a need for creation date; I'd settle for just creator's ID.

Reason I ask is that when trawling though hundreds of threads of old it would be nice to be able to readily jump to those started by the technical gurus.

Add another column to the limited space that already exists?

Soon we will be calling this website GTC World (Great Theremin Community)

Just click on the the #1 on the right side of Previous and the thread starter is there at the top of the page with every word that started the thread.

You have that youthful enthusiasm but I more think you are retired?

I do welcome you aboard the theremin string of lights with respect, as every theremin glows with EMR in some form, our responsibility is to tame it or maybe even fake it.

Edit: What you want is found by clicking a guru's name above his picture, then go to Forum Activity:   it is a great feature.

What would you think about adding "my posts" and "my threads" links under the user picture so people could quickly jump to the list of all threads/posts by that person?

Also - re: the limited space comment.  Some sites use the entire width of the browser window in forums but only a fixed width for the rest of the site.  Personally I find that dichotomy annoying.  That's why I chose the fixed-width layout for our forums.

But what do you think?

I see this as a great advantage to the newbie plus it's convenient, I am for it.

Jason...do you hide behind your monitor and desk when at work interacting with your first love (TW) after family?

Let's just say I have a strong passion for everything I do, which is why I spread myself too thinly across them all ;)

@ Jason:  I for one am very grateful for all of your help and hard work...Even though you may end up looking like Stretch Armstrong...

@Jason, in my browser there's plenty of space to the left and right of the form for another column, which doesn't need to be very wide.

I also like your suggestion of a my posts and my threads feature, which is pretty common among the phpBB, vBulletin, etc, sites.
