A seperate page for New Thread submission
Having a dedicated page for posting a new thread would help the integration on my website,
where I have a sidebar featuring the recently created topic titles,
and a "New Thread" submit button, to encourage thread creation.
This separate page to direct users to is good , rather than the entire forum itself where they may get confused.
This idea would also facilitate the users who want to submit a lot, say from browser bookmarks, encouraging easier use.
A simple solution for this could be, a url which would invoke the New Thread editor to popup.

Ok so this is, in more technical terms, about adding a URL hash fragment (i.e.
#new-threadin your example above) that auto opens the editor?
That seems like a good idea. Actually, for the user profile page, I've implemented that already — if you click this link, the editor will auto open, for typing a direct message to me:
is that what you're looking for, but for creating new topics in the topic list view? (rather than direct messages to a person)
