As in the last year, it is difficult to find how to post a new idea. This option is neither in the pull-down menu of "Actions" nor in the short links of Actions to the right of the Top 10 ideas Section.
Please see the attachment.
SOLIDWORKS World 2016 Top Ten List
This is clear but the content is available ONLY form this page. There is no link to this page or directly to "Write an Idea" page from the other SW pages. All the rest SW pages are disconnected from submitting an idea.
If you follow the link in previous post you can directly go to "create an idea" on the right.
Again: My suggestion was that either link to this page or directly to "Submit an Idea" should be made from the page I have upload to this discussion to the page you have posted above. It is not logical form the page I posted to be able to browse ideas, read ideas, edit your own ideas, but NOT to post a new idea. Thank you for considering my suggestion.
If it´s your idea you are looking at you can move it , edit it etc.
But you would have to go back to the list somehow to make a new one e.g. by clicking ideas , see image.
Sorry, if I did not understand you.
Only trying to help.
Here is the point. There is no way to go to the list of ideas from the page I have emailed to you. It is not "going back" because one arrives to this Forum page not from the page of the Top 10 ideas but from the SW Forum. "Top 10 Ideas' page is a part of the SW Forum and submission of an idea should be accessible form the Forum.
It is very simple to add such a link. In fact adding only "Write a new Idea" link to the right hand-side menu of the "Actions" will be enough because all the rest needs , as I mentioned, are available form that page. Currently the "Top 10 Ideas" page is totally isolated form accessing the other pages of the Forum, while it is accessible from the Forum for all BUT ONE of the operations (write an idea). Because this confusion is repeated every year I would like very much someone to place the requested link in the Forum Page I have uploaded. Thank you for your help.
Boyko I agree with you, there should be a quick way to create ideas and one should be able to reach it from anywhere.

Josef, those are again many steps to post the IDEA. Why not have "Create Idea" button everywhere.
I must agree. I had problems to find it for the first time, too
I went to the path suggested by you with starting point the Forum Home. I actually tried to find that path before I did this post - I didn't .Now, I went back and here are my comments:1) It is a long path
2) it is not at all clear which of the main tabs should select for writing an idea. That should be Actions but it could be any of the 5 main tabs.3) Checking on all those 5 tabs, and reading carefully each of additional dozen of choice they offer would take about 5,
To sum-up this discussion: A. AnyWeb Page should be design in away to reduce waste of time, especially Forum Pages where one could spend a lot of time searching for the right thing.
B. There is no doubt to me that a quick link to " Top 10 ideas" should be added in the Forum Home page in the list of the "Space/groups" but not under "General". Additional link "Write an Ideal" should be added in the "Action" Tab (and "Action" List accordingly)
