When there is a discussion on a proposal, it shows it under it (the proposal). When it says 1d (username), shouldn't it be the author that's displayed, and not the latest responder?

1 Answer 1


The discussion listing embedded in the proposal is equivalent to 'active' tab on our main Q&A. The purpose is to show when new activity occurs within a thread (latest responder). If that listing always showed the original author, no one would know to go check out the thread when something is added. It would be a static display. We intentionally show the latest activity to let folks know there is something new to see.

  • it took me a while to understand it (on the main sites), but eventually I found it really useful. I am still wondering whether adding (in parenthesis) the name of the original author could be useful or not.
