I don't know if this is the way things work for everyone on this forum, but I'm having trouble with my replies not appearing after I submit them. It seems to be very hit-and-miss as to which replies appear instantly after I click on "Submit Reply" and which don't. With those that don't, I get the message:

"Thank you for posting! Your post will not be visible until a moderator has approved it for posting. You will now be taken back to the forum. If you opted to post a poll, you will now be allowed to do so."

It then takes a couple of days for the reply to appear (at the point in the thread where I originally posted it), by which time the topic has moved on.

Is this usual for users who are new to the forum?
