    I assume my posts and comments in the forum need to go through moderation before appearing either because I am new, or because I am a free Onshape user? 
    Which is understandable. But I just wanted to send some feedback that the user experience is pretty terrible currently and really disincentivizes me from participating. 
    When I post a comment (potentially after investing some time and care into writing it), it just disappears, without any notice whatsoever. Reloading the page in the browser brings back my comment in the edit field as it was before submitting. But hitting the "Post Comment" button again just makes it disappear once again. By now I understand that the comment likely gets entered into a queue to be reviewed. But there is zero indication to the user that this is happening.
