Before posting my last thread at the suggestions I've actively searched for the form or the button to send a new post. For a few seconds I wondered if the forum was inactive. Why ? Because the New Thread doesn't look like a link but rather as a column header:

new thread

This is even worse for non-registered users. What do they think when they see a mod forum ?

closed

I hope these issues will be fixed in the redesign. A registered user needs to see a link that looks like a link or a button or an empty form to post.

A non-registered user should never see "Closed" in a forum they can't use.

Hey Axonis you are 100% right, that is awful usability and i've fixed it now. I added 2 buttons saying "add" or "login" and I tried a few designs but couldn't make anything great. Welcome any more feedback like this where we can make it better.

Always try and fix usability issues as efficiently as possible.
