Hi, I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone knew where I might find the Propose New Topics button on the All Topics page?

Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

It's hidden until you've made 10,000 posts.

seriously? That explains a lot, but its a good thing I suppose...we would otherwise have a cluttered wasteland of rejected messes to sweep up every day

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity.
In the same way that "allowing people to choose what they want to be when they grow up" undermines communism.

A button for going to a page to propose a new topic. Hmmm. That's an idea with potential. I've never been happy with the current system from an administrative and software standpoint. It's worth some thought.

I know I've thought for only a little while, but I think I have a good idea for an improved approach to beginning new topics. There would be two types of forums:

  1. Forum requires a proposal stage.

    At the top of the list of topics would be a "Propose New Topic" button. Clicking on it would open the message entry page. Once the topic proposal is submitted it would be added at the top of the list of topics for that forum, but it would be closed and only administrators could respond to the message. Once the topic proposing process is complete the administrator would open the topic for discussion.

    On message list pages for such forums the "New Topic" button would be replaced with a "Propose New Topic" button.

  2. Forum does not require a proposal stage.

    At the top of the list of topics and of message list pages would be a "New Topic" button, just like now.

The current Proposed New Topics forum would become obsolete and be closed.
