 Quite often, users who want to ask a new question submit their question as
 a reply to some earlier question (their own question or someone else's).

 One reason for this seems to be that they've arrived to the forum either
 via an emailed link from a topic they've participated in earlier, or via

 And, once you're inside a specific topic, it's not too obvious how to add
 a NEW question/topic. There will be a link to the forum itself in the
 sidebar (which is further down on narrow screens), but it's still not
 obvious that that's the way to go.

 Instead, they'll fill out the only form they see.

 Suggestion: Add a button near the response form "Create new topic"
