I think what HondaMan might be referring to is when you view 'speakers corner' [or other forum area] page as a whole; the date/time/by whom that the original thread was started is not shown. "Looking at this post, it would be helpful, to me at least, to know when the thread was started"
What is shown is the date/time of the last comment/post to the thread, but not when it was started, or by whom.
Not sure what you are looking for. You have to open the thread to get the post date.
Unless I've misunderstood what HondaMan meant, isn't that the point of the thread?? The need to open the thread in order to identify when it was started, as opposed to it being shown next to the originators name, without the need to open the thread?
