    Would it be possible to get a little icon next to a post when a Dev has posted in the thread?
    I see lots of threads by us players but I don't think I've seen a single post by a Dev this year.
    Are they even back off their Christmas break yet?
    I know they had exciting news for us they couldn't wait till the new year to tell us about but now 20 days in to the new year still nothing.......seems like they're starting as they mean to go on.

    It's a good idea. There is a developer feed: UO Developer Feed | Stratics, including one post this year. But yes, an icon would be spiffy.

    I've moved this post to the Suggestions forum so we can keep track of it with the other suggestions.

    While I can't make any promises, I personally think this is a great idea worth looking into.

    I checked for existing plugins that do this. There isn't one, unfortunately. It'd have to be developed.

    I've been looking too, and you're right there's isn't plugin for it. I know we're debating a couple of things we need so this will be added to the list.

    Sorry I was thinking about the one they use to give feedback on posts people make, not a marker on the Thread List.

    I caught myself and you replied while I was editing :p

    @Nexus Ha, sorry about that. Someone suggested updating the thread prefix when a dev posts, but that would be painfully manual.

    Now I am thinking of contacting the developer of this plugin [SSD] Group New Posts and asking him if he'd be interested in making a similar plugin that would allow us to show when a member of a specific usergroup makes a post anywhere on the forums. I could see lots of usage for it beyond just what people are asking for here.
