I like to check in frequently and click on the "Latest Posts" link, as it is easier than scrolling through a bunch of forums. However, for some reason there is not as much information shown about threads as there is when looking at a forum such as Brushes, Blades, Safety Razors, etc. Those show who who made the last post (and when), while the Latest Post view does not. (Latest Post only shows Thread Author, Forum, # of replies, and # of views.)

Is there any way to make the Latest Post view have that information as well? It is useful when browsing.

Thanks! I'm enjoying DFS a lot.

I'm not sure what type of information would make it more helpful. that said, anything added would probably require core file changes, which I'm not willing to do (it makes updates a real PITA).

Who made the last post, and at what time, such as is visible in other forums. I understand if it can't be done for some reason, but it would be helpful. Just offering up a suggestion to try and improve the forum for everyone. Thanks.
