It seem's I can't create a question in Coffee Corner, as that primary tag is not found! (See screenshot).

I see that others seem to be able to do just that and I was able to crate a blog in Coffee Corner, which apperentgly is not even intended.

Any idea?

Yes, click on "Community" and then on "Coffee Corner". It's on purpose that you can only create discussions in the CC and not questions or blogs. That's why you can't find it the other way around. :)

"Start a discussion" would be your action of choice in the right hand menu then.

Thanks Steffi and Steve!

so my key-learning is that "Question" and "Discussion" are different things.

(I did notice it said "4 discussions" but I assumed this was just a synonym for questions).

I learn a lot on my first day!

The coffee corner is intended for "discussions" only. If you go there, one of the actions on the Action menu is "Start a discussion". That works.

Having "Ask a question" also on that menu is confusing - I tried to do the same thing earlier.

Well, using "Write a Blog Post" or "Ask a Question" starts the related applications, but I see that it can be confusing that those won't stay in the CC.

Since you can't start a discussion from the blogs or q&a, because the action is missing in those menus, maybe the CC actions menu should also be "cleaned up"? Do you guys think this could be a thing for the new community idea place?
