    Why is it that our favorite fruit mod :p appears as OP in different sales threads in below forum view, when he's clearly not the OP, but the mod who approved the thread? It looks like at first glance, like if he were selling something, when he's not.

    Here's an example of what i'm talking about:

    And when you actually enter the thread, everything is in order:

    I remember seeing this with at least one other thread too, which i can't recall anymore, but maybe there are even more threads like this.

    Yeah, its been an issue for a long time now, a lot of threads have BigBuddy or Mr.Apricot as the OP if you look at them from the homepage, depends on which mod approved the thread. Also, if you go to BigBuddy's profile and then click on "Find Latest Started Threads" you'll see many sales threads that are not from BB but he approved them.

    Weird glitches.

    I reported that to the mods a while back when bigbuddy was approving threads. (Edit: Was actually Wiz)

    He explained that the threads are submitted for approval and once they meet the requirements... then they are posted to the forum by the mod that approved them. Due to the forum setup... it shows the mod as the OP on the home page and not the person actually selling the service.

    Just a small glitch... but thats how the forum is set up.

    Edit: It was WizGizmo I contacted and not Bigbuddy as previously stated... had to look it up in my pm's.

    It's a glitch that DD can fix manually per thread I think.

    Aside from that, It's looking to be fixed in the ominous BHW 2.0.
