Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

The Last post column on the front page of the forum displays only the last non-anonymous post - i.e. a post by a registered user will remain the "last post" even after someone posts anonymously. Can't see a reason for this, must be a bug.

Soz if repost.

Re: Anonymous last post

It's intentional so that you can't see who an anonymous user is. It could say the last post is by [anon name] though...

Really? I thought it went without saying that ofc it would show the anonymous name. The point was that it's incorrect some of the time.

of all the things we've seen go down so far in the interest of making this anonymity system exist

you think this is the not-possible feature?

I am incredulous and disagree.

of course it's possible, it's just fairly annoying, which is the reason it wasn't already done

Indeed. I'm not sure how much more annoying it would be to modify the query to find the latest not-anonymous poster than if we simply found the latest poster and then.... oh yeah you'd still have to do the anon conversion. OK, slightly more annoying.

The forums store each topic's last poster and last post along with info like the topic ID, poster, and subject, and they do the same for each forum. Every time a topic or forum is posted in, it's last poster and last post ID is updated. That way the forum can grab that info without having to actually look for the last post. The difference between topics and forums is that the topic is updated by post.php itself, while updating the forums is outsourced to the update_forum() function. So, being the shamefully lazy person I am, I told post.php to neglect calling update_forum() if the topic was anonymous. Now it doesn't do that, and to avoid update_forum having to grab a bunch of extra info to re-generate the anonymous name, it's passed along from post.php to update_forum().
