No, we could never
have that. The software is setup in a way to keep people from posting or starting threads where they should not.
The forum is set up by topics, You must be all the way into a subtopic, to be able to start a thread. This makes sure that people only start threads in the topics, and ONLY the particular topic subsection they are in. It would be utter chaos allowing threads to be started from anywhere on the forum, as people would not post in the correct subtopics.
Also the post option only shows when you are in a single particular thread...again which is the only way it needs to be..as to keep all kind of stuff from being misquoted, misthreaded, misposted.
The site team gets many reported posts, where the member simply hit the wrong button, and instead of replying, or quoting... hit the reported post button. I could only imagine how messed up it would be with even more options to get misapplied.
