"New Topic" submission button in the form should use a verb instead


(Jakub Bukaj) #1

This is a minor annoyance that I’d spotted when using Discourse for the first time but it’s one of those things that add up as they’re on the critical UX path.

I think verbs are pretty much the only way to go for buttons that actually perform an action. It seems to already be the case for most UI elements in Discourse but not that particular button.

“Submit” would work well but also “Create”.

Thanks!

Why not make the button labels be customizable in admin instead kinda like board colors? This way an admin could adjust them on the fly with text that makes sense to them.

Several other topics on this already.
