Default Possibility of having the OP on top of every page?

There are other forums i go on which have the Original Post at the top of every page. So you'd see what the topic was about on top as the first post of the page and then all the discussion posts below that.

Can't remember off the top of my head what other forums use this but i am fairly certain they use Vbulletin.

I often see people complaining about the topics going off topic and the merges making things confusing. For the mega threads we have it could be an idea to update the OP with what threads have previously been merged.

The injury thread is one of the best examples and uses for it IMO. That's something which is constantly being updated and progresses. You could update the OP with the list of current injuries and it'd be at the top of every page for every one to see. They wouldn't have to dig through pages.

Just an idea. Not sure if it's hard or not to implement, could just be an option in the settings. It could also be annoying for some people.

That sounds like a really good idea, if it could be pulled off.

Some folks like to start threads, just so they can see their name on the main page in GD.

Can you imagine, if they knew that their post was going to be at the top of every page in the threads?

With careful planning and good timing, the original poster could simply repost his post at just the right moment to lead off every page. I think it could be done.

It can be done. I don't know anything about actually implementing things into vbulletin though.

Found a topic/mod for it to be done.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=306348

^^^That one is even better than what i've seen on other forums since you can set it to specific forums or topics. Would mean it wouldn't affect the whole board and possibly become annoying for forums/topics that don't need it.

Well we have some excellent writers on the forum who deserve to have their username in the spotlight haha

For the topic creators who really care about their topic though i think it's a great feature. I know there are some posters on here who try and keep their threads updated and do a good job.

Until i delete a post of mine on the first page to troll you!


Honestly though, I dont see the need to constantly see the OP. Usually within a few pages the subject is slightly different.

That's what i see as being the biggest hurdle. Not having an active admin holds the forum back a bit i think.

Good point. By the time we're on page two, every thread is just fire Norv! Fire AJ!
