Default New threads

New threads are a problem for new members, they find a thread that is simular to their problem and add to it. Why not put a new thread button right beside the reply button and link it to the same forum
With a little note there about not adding to old posts with new problems.

It is bothersome. Plus I keep thinking that Nestor is back, LOL!
Worse yet, I don't bother looking at post that have numerous replies thinking that the problem is being well taken care of.
I also don't bother scrolling down on post that are months/years old.

It's best to start a fresh post so we can see that it is a new post & hasn't been beat like a dead horse.

It's hard not getting angry at people but new people just don't understand, so let's make it easier.

It's likely a problem on the other sites too.

1. wondering - showing curiosity; "if someone saw a man climbing a light post they might get inquisitive"; "raised a speculative eyebrow"
inquisitive, questioning, speculative
curious - eager to investigate and learn or learn more (sometimes about others' concerns); "a curious child is a teacher's delight"; "a trap door that made me curious"; "curious investigators"; "traffic was slowed by curious rubberneckers"; "curious about the neighbor's doings

Sometimes it's productive
