Hi , The current author meta box only shows the author IP ,

Happy that this solved, but I think we should look more deeper in this, My point was to add the ability to change the topic/reply author.

In also adding support for WordPress author meta-box slowdown the page, especially when the forums have many users, and WordPress list all users in a dropdown which make it hard to select one user !

Can we do this by more smarter way... like the topic ID input in the reply edit screen ?!
