Did you mean: 

Last reply by is not the last one replying?

It seems that the last reply by on the overview page is not the actual last one who replied.
Especially with older topics or more forks in the discussion. This can be a bit confusing.
The "last reply by" appears to be the one who replied to the initial question last. But the timestamp displayed is that of the actual last reply in the topic.

Another thing is that it may be good to consider closing old topics for new replies.
Thinking a new topic started, entering the details suddenly you're reading messages from early 2019 (because someone decided to place a "me too"or "how about..")  can be confusing too 🙂
I found myself almost answering a question form the good old days 😄

It happens when you do reply to someone's post using the "Reply" button.
If you do Reply "normally", using the "Post Reply" button, it will show the last post user id.
