To post a new thread (start your own topic - thread means topic) click on the red arrow in the below screenshot marked "Start new thread". This button is only visible while viewing a subforum so that your thread is posted to that subforum. You can also change your user options or preferences by clicking on "User control panel". Once you have made a post you can add an avatar (the picture next to your user name) or signature.
To reply to a post, click on the button Q-reply (quick reply). This will activate the quick reply message box. Type your message, then click "Post Quick Reply".
If you want to quote the message click "Quote". M-Quote will quote multiple posts. The last one you quote should be "Quote" and it will open the reply box.
You can also click "Go Advanced" (the button next to post quick reply) to get more options like attachments or smilies.

For more advanced features of using the forum like how to quote another post, multi quote, or change how the forum looks, click on "How to post or use the forum" right next to "User control panel" or "Register".

To increase the height of the reply box, click the up/down arrows on the reply box once you've activated the reply box. The width is fixed (I already increased the width significantly vs. the default settings and it's not possible to go wider without messing up the page formatting).
