Most of my decade old members, simply hate to start a new thread, the way it is set-up in forums... they are so much addicted to copy paste a link on a box and it populates itself with content including images just like on Facebook, press publish and boom you are done!
The saving grace for forums is that the content on social media websites is of perishable nature and impossible to retrieve later on for a future reference..
i would love to see an option to create content on the fly, all-in-one step! where you don't have to venture through a big list of forums to go through an appropriate forum.
Right at Forum Home > Create New thread > Opens a popup > Choose a thread prefix (drop-down) > Choose an appropriate forum (drop-down) > Thread heading > Type in the content > Publish > Done!
