In the designs of all sites, the original poster of the question is highlighted in comments, however in the new design of MSE, the highlighting is missing. The OP looks just like any other user.

Example from MSE without highlighting:

screenshoot from MSE without highlighting for OP

However, in a question from MSO, the highlighting is present:

screenshoot from MSO with highlighting for OP

Can the OP get his/her highlighting back on MSE?

  • Obviously, my EEK-ness radar is off (although, I did only use 3 E's, so I knew it wasn't an EEEEEEEEK) Apr 23, 2014 at 9:00

    @hims056 is right, balpha has graciously de-eeekified more than one of my reports. :) Apr 23, 2014 at 9:02
  • @ShadowWizard but he left mine alone :) so maybe it was an EEEK? Apr 23, 2014 at 9:09
  • @psubsee2003 because it's a dupe, he probably saw no point editing it. You can ask him directly, he won't bite! (but maybe he'll byte you ;-)) Apr 23, 2014 at 9:10
