This very simple template hack, is awesome. You and your users will love it. It requires one template edit, and one image to be uploaded.
I have included the zip, which has the template edit, and couple of images we use, and the PSD.

No linkbacks required for this hack, but would like for you to recognise this great hack, by clicking "installed"

***************************************************
14th January 2009 release YBMF-Bellardia-Thread-Starter-v1.00

What does this hack do ?

Answer: quite simply, it displays in the signature of the thread starter a thread starter graphic.

Gee thats brilliant, WHY !!!!! ???

Answer: why not, how often do you read thru latest posts and think what a great THREAD ! Then want to give Karma/Thanks to the original thread

starter ? Now you can.. its VERY simple.

TRY IT your members will love it.


***************************************************
Graphics included for french , dutch
PSD included:
Just open in Adobe Photoshop, highlight layer style for border, and change colour. Or change text, save as thread_starter.gif

Template changes.

Goto AdminCP > Styles And Templates, search in templates ( in current style )

in dropdown box choose ( current style )
in search for Text type : postbit_legacy ( or postbit if you use that )

radio button for Search Titles Only click YES
Click FIND

Open the postbit_legacy template

in Search In Template type :

$template_hook[postbit_signature_start]
$ad_location[ad_showthread_firstpost_sig]

After this add:

<!--YoBroMoFo Bellardia Thread Starter-->
<if condition="$post['signature'] OR $thread[postuserid] == $post[userid]">
<!-- sig -->
<div>
__________________<br />
<if condition="$thread[postuserid] == $post[userid]">
<img src="http://yourwebsite.com/forum/images/thread_starter.gif" alt="Thread Starter"><br />
</if>

</div>
<!-- / sig -->
</if>
<!--end of YoBroMoFo Bellardia Thread Starter-->

******************************************************************************** *****************

Change http://yourwebsite.com/forum/images/thread_starter.gif to your filepath for the image
Upload the image to this destination using FTP
Change the alt="Thread Starter" above to your language translation or leave as is.

Click Save

DONE !!!!!

If the image does not display on new threads, in post view, then check you have the correct filepath.

As always full assistance given.

Please note this code was designed by Bellardia based on our request. Full attributation to Bellardia.

If you use, please MARK AS INSTALLED and/or click Nominate for Mod of the Month.

UPDATE:

My original code is in fact correct.
Please revert postbit template changes, with this code below.

Open the postbit_legacy template

in Search In Template type :
$template_hook[postbit_signature_start]
$ad_location[ad_showthread_firstpost_sig]

After this add:

<!--YoBroMoFo Bellardia Thread Starter-->
<if condition="$post['signature'] OR $thread[postuserid] == $post[userid]">
<!-- sig -->
<div>
__________________<br />
<if condition="$thread[postuserid] == $post[userid]">
<img src="http://yourwebsite.com/forum/images/thread_starter.gif" alt="Thread Starter"><br />
</if>
$post[signature]
</div>
<!-- / sig -->
</if>
<!--end of YoBroMoFo Bellardia Thread Starter-->

******************************************************************************** *****************

Change http://yourwebsite.com/forum/images/thread_starter.gif to your filepath for the image
Upload the image to this destination using FTP
Change the alt="Thread Starter" above to your language translation or leave as is.

Please make special note to INCLUDE

$post[signature]

so that members signatures also appear.
