With the number of threads posted in this forum, and the number of users that seem to come and go, it would be nice possibly in the user's credentials to post the date of the last post. This would give an indication if the owner of a particular thread is continuing to support the thread. There is a lot of good information presented in the forums, however many times the threads are no longer maintained, and often times there is no indication of this, other then when posting a question or response, this communication is unanswered. This frustrates the person asking the question and often leads to a series of BUMPS.
I'm not proposing necrothreading, however it would be great to know if the author of the thread continues to be an active member of the forums. The best way I can think of this is either the date of the last post, or a last seen date (which would be the date of the last active login).
