This icon would only apply to the person who started the actual thread and every time that person posts a response in that thread, there will be an icon say at the top right hand side of his/her responses.

This would allow people to see instantly the OP still has issues/questions needs attention.....this would help to focus on the actual issues rather than responses being off-subject.....equally strong, there is a limit to what the OP can accept as everyone is is especially hard to see who the thread starter is when we are reading a long thread and among these mulitiple pages.....appreciating that when there is a debate thread, this would not apply as it is open to all.

I quite like the idea, but If it was optional (i.e. it could be turned off or on) it may be more useful - if able to be implemented - as there are threads where the OP is not needed to be the main focus of responses such as general interest threads.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
