Start at http://forums.adobe.com/index.jspa and find a forum from the drop down list... which will let you talk to other users
To tell Adobe something, go to https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
That would be where I would direct the OP too.
There are several sub-forums under Premiere:
I think that # 2 would be the one, that the OP wants.
I can see the dropdown as shown in the screenshgot on this page, too. On every page, doesn't matter where I am in the adobe forums.
When I click it, a dialog opens with a link to "browse locations". When I click that I get what you see in the screenshot of the start post.
It seems we don't all see the same?
I use Chrome on Windows 7.
Edit: I just tried new document, video and poll and it's the same problem as with new idea.
I tried "New Idea" in a few forums, where I do not have MOD status, and got nothing - no error message, no nothing [SIC].

While not the definitive word, it point in the direction of one's interface console in a particular forum.
Just some observations,
Well, even without Jive updates, things are changing. Not all MOD's know everything, that there is to know. Adobe is trying to "educate" them, but it is a rather large, and monumental task. It's getting better, but MOD's still are asking questions, so it is not complete, and at many levels.
Also, the Adobe Forums are rather a "living, breathing" entity, so things are a bit dynamic.
Sorry that I do not have a concrete answer for you, but maybe, after the US Labor Day holiday, Terri, or someone else, can fill in the details.
Ok, but this doesn't explain moderators that not anyone knows they are moderators... And in this I include moderators themselves. In other non-Adobe forums I frequent, moderators are identified by appropriate badges, and they always leave a message explaining why they did what they did as moderators.
Okay that clears it up for me: It are MOD actions, but not hidden from normal users.
... as they should be. In my opinion, no area reserved for mods usage should be visible for non-mods.
At least from my limited knowledge, one can be a MOD in Adobe Forum A, but not have those privileges in Adobe Forum B.
When I do anything, as a MOD, I try to not only point out in a Reply, or annotation, what I did, but a little bit of "why." As I am not very active in that role, I also PM the OP, to explain the what and the why, so that they are not lost, and wondering.
I do not think that all MOD's have the time for the PM, as they are working on many more threads, than I ever will, so it's only a personal thing with me.

I agree with you 100% on this. There are often many, many considerations, prior to doing something actively, and many MOD's will query the entire MOD and Administrative community, before taking some actions.
Only certain forum product groups have activated Ideas within forums. The others will be grayed out. Some teams, such as Photoshop, are using a completely separate site for their ideas, such as http://feedback.photoshop.com.

Bill, it is unfortunate that this civil behaviour is a personal thing with you. While it's true that I see many cases of threads moved to their proper forum by a mod who leaves a one line message indicating who did the move, it's unfortunate that one also sees instances of messages, and occassionally whole threads, that simpliy disappear without leaving any trace. Not to mention those mods who mark an answer as Correct a couple of seconds after it is posted. Or ...
And I remeber very vividly a case in which a most active participant in one forum asked another very active participant in the same forum if he was also a mod. It was through that public post that I learned that the first was a mod while the second wasn't.
Why the secrecy? I don't see anything evil or shameful in being a mod. Quite the opposite.
