Ask PG: Can we get a highlight for the OP replies?

Is there any way you could add a highlight or change the color of the OP when they reply to their post? Sometimes on Ask HNs, it's hard to find their replies buried deep within the many threads. BTW, reddit does this :)

I just asked this yesterday.. scroll down 'ask' a bit further.


Cool :) I guess if I had a search I could have just searched :)

I used searchyc to try and find something before I submitted yesterday.. though I didn't find anything, in some instances it took up to 40 seconds for a query to go through.. ugh.

That link is to a suggestions for improvements thread from years ago; it's not clear that it is still being used at the HN end.

However, http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=363#score_1148154 should take you to the OP comment highlighting comment.
