do people really use the post button while reading a thread anyway?
nope, that's what is confusing. You don't expect a "post new thread"-button in a thread.

That's what I was trying to tell Elvis but he thinks otherwise.

I suggested to change the name of the button to 'new thread' instead of 'post' but he thinks that would be even more confusing as most users / new users wouldnt know what a 'thread' was.

I can't see how a "new thread" button and a "reply" button could be more confusing than the current "post" and "reply" buttons as I think of post and reply as synonymous.

'New Topic' might be even easier to comprehend.

But then people will have to go searching for the post button.

Anyway, I've been informed that this feature is not changing right now.
