A person who starts a particular thread, could he or she called a “threadster”? Has that word been coined already?
I believe the technical term is thread-meister.
One google link noted this source: "…and not all Indian casinos are owned by Indians. And our recent threadster doesn’t need to weigh in on every single thread. your posts are less and less…
Thread-meister is good, but it sounds too meisteriish, like a thread *master. These kinds of threads on boards like this seem to call for a less formal word than thread-meister. The mods might be called thread-meisters, since they control things. But each person who starts a thread, does threadster sound like a good term? I like it. It was probably coined 5 years ago or more, somewhere in the Milky Way Cybergalaxy…
Threadster. It has a nice ring to it. Thread-meister sounds better for the mods and admins.
Here’s an even better reference.
from a FAQ
[How does it know what forum and who’s the threadster? you tell em via the admincp options (where the rest of the vboptions are) theirs a handy little group for the MAF and i don’t mean 2+2]

It was just a bad joke realated to your name. Cola? Caffeine? Sorry master…I mean threadmaster. Please don’t slay me.
