      Description

      "Start a New Conversation" is a long, unwieldy button label.

      Renaming "Start a New Conversation" to "New Post" simplifies the interface for the user in several ways.

      1. Users typically refer to forum discussion messages as "posts" not as "conversations."
      2. "New Post" is more consistent with other tools where new items are added
      3. "New Post" is shorter, causing less visual clutter on the screen

      The attached mockup image shows the renamed option highlighted in yellow. Note: Since the mockup was created, the "tab" Start a New Conversation has been changed back to a button, as shown in screenshot above.
