I just joined the forum and wrote up a somewhat lengthy intro post a few hours ago. After hitting "submit new thread" I didn't see anything telling me my post needed to be approved or anything, but it still hasn't shown up. How do I know if my post actually got posted? How long do I wait before determining that it has vanished and I need to redo the entire thing? So far I have no post history, and nothing informing me that I have posts awaiting approval, so I can't actually tell if my post disappeared into cyberspace or will resurface someday.
