I'm at https://www.daniweb.com/articles/latest/unanswered and when I mouse over the poster's gravatar or icon, all pop up with "First Post by" and the menber name.

OK, that's all well and good but then I was curious to see all the posts were "First Post by". Even one by me!

This is a truly minor bug but may as well log it.

Sorry, I'm misunderstanding the behavior you're reporting. What do you believe the expected behavior is and what are you seeing instead?

To me "First Post by" is just that. It's this member's first ever post. I expected this if the member has this and only this post but otherwise it seems to be non-information so why bother with the pop up info?

Oh, I see. The first avatar is the member who posted the first post in the thread. The second avatar is the member who posted the last post in the thread. Threads with 0 replies just have a first poster.

Does anyone else think what rproffitt thought?

That makes sense over in the https://www.daniweb.com/articles/latest view where there are first and latest posts but on this page it seemed odd to me and my mind thought, oh, it's a new user and their first post.

This is really minor. It only made me ask when I went over 10 unanswered posts and all were first time posts then, wait a minute, I'm not a first time poster.

How about thread starter? Or similar to avoid ambiguity?

Ok I’ll take a look at it tomorrow and see why it failed.
