Users can start new threads in the New Kid, Accident Prone and Communing with the Pack forums. In other forums, threads can only be started by a moderator.
PLEASE ONLY START TOPICS WHICH ARE APPROPRIATE TO THESE FORUMS. Do not use these forums to start other kinds of discussions. Off-topic threads will be deleted -- and users warned. Don't irritate the Volturi!
For more on why we're not letting users start their own threads everywhere on the Lex, please see here.
You can request new topics you'd like to see started on our Request a Topic thread.
