    I say again, you should not communicate in a general forum, especially hijack someone elses post.
    If you need a question answered PM one of the moderators!

    Click the 'Forums' tab at the top of the page, then select an appropriate forum. You will then see the 'Start a new thread' button at the top on the right.

    MOD NOTE: These posts constituted a hijack of another thread. They were split here to resolve the central issue.

    You can't start your own "forum", since the forums are categories of threads established by the administrators.

    What you are probably trying to do is start a "thread", which is a collection of posts on a related topic within one of the existing forums.

    To post a new thread, go into one of the existing forums, such as "General Electronics Chat", and you should see a button somewhere near the top and/or bottom that says something like, "Post New Thread", probably on the right side. I can't be exact because there are at least two "schemas" in use -- a blue one and an orange one. The blue one is the older one and the one that I prefer. You are probably using the newer (and default) orange one. If you can't find it then respond to this thread and, if necessary, I'll switch to the orange one long enough to tell you where to find it.

    FYI: The other post was split out to a separate thread.

    If you don't see a 'Post New Thread' button, it's likely because you don't have permission to post in that forum (ie - new members cannot start a thread in 'The Completed Projects' and 'Marketplace' forums).
