Auto change thread prefix based on last post user.

This add-on is ideal for a support ticket forum. The thread prefix is automatically changed depending on the last post user. For example if a member starts a support ticket the prefix will be automatically set to "Awaiting staff reply" and when the staff replies it will automatically be set to "Awaiting member reply" and so on. When the member gets his question answered, staff will use the Status button to change the prefix to Resolved.
