Original poster most recent poster

My coworker asked me about the blue ring around someone’s picture. How should I explain this feature and how its helpful to community members? They were just wondering what it means.

Original poster - Topic creator / first poster. (First avatar in the users list)
Most recent poster - Recent replier / last poster in the topic. (Last avatar in the users list normally)

When Original poster and Most recent poster are same then instead of displaying the same avatar twice in both first and last places it will be displayed in the first place with blue ring. So it simply means the topic creator is the last replier.

Anybody find this blue ring useful? Or clear?

It’s superior to duplicating the avatar twice, I’ll tell you that. Duplication is noisy.
