  • That's a bit of forum jargon. OP stands for Original Poster. On Stack Exchange, that is the person that asked the question. – oerkelens Apr 15 at 5:33

On online forums, message boards, discussion spots etc., OP stands for Original Poster, the one who initiated the discussion. As an example, in this discussion, it is you, @Robert Motari Ontiri, who is the OP.
