This question already has an answer here:
- What's StackExchange-ese for “OP”? 4 answers
I'm used to forums, where you talk about posters and OPs.
In SE, what can we call someone who asks a question - an OP, a questioner, something else?
What should we call someone who answers - an answerer?
I often want to refer to one or the other in a comment. I haven't been able to spot what others do. Are they using something like OP or do they just skirt around it?
I see that my question has been marked as a duplicate.
I'll appeal on the basis that the other question is much more specific.
It asks for a straight 'translation' of the term "OP" - that's all. There is no request for a discussion as I have indicated in my tags and now in the title itself.
It does not ask about what an 'Answerer' should be called. Although someone does address that point, it doesn't appear in the title and so wouldn't be found by a simple search.
Although I say it myself, my question title is much clearer (and therefore more easily searchable) than the other.
I believe that the other question is completely subsumed by mine. If that question is to stand then perhaps it should be edited so that the title reflects the contents.
