I haven't seen this feedback before, but thought it was interesting. Anyone else feel like this is a problem, or is it just a "can't please everyone" type of issue?
That's a good point. Will bring this up...That eyeball means you're watching that thread, not that you've necessarily participated in it.
Default XF behavior is your avatar over the OP's in the thread list.
Where is the participated indicator here?
Agreed. So do I. Right now its under Following if you click that, and its called "Participated Discussions"On this subject, a "Threads I've posted in" link in the dropdown when you click on your picture up top would be handy. A lot of folks use their /postedin URL as a starting point or bookmark on forums.
