I tried posting a new post, but it kept bringing me kept refreshing the posting page with the I am not a robot box. There was or is no indication as to whether my post has been submitted and waiting approval or whether it just hasn't posted at all. Should there be a waiting approval pop up?
I do not see anything pending, and it appears that you were approved prior, so it should have posted. This was a post itself that worked for you, so not sure what is going on with the I am not a robot bit. You are not a robot, are you?

Would it not be possible to have something in place that stops multiple first posts, as I have sorted loads of these out in the last week, people submitting there first post and then when it does not show right away submitting it again and again, on some I have deleted two, three and four of the same posts....from the same person...one day there were 12 unapproved posts, and from only four different people.....go figure....

Just did this myself... I think. After I submitted both posts, there was no form that let me know if the post was accepted, waiting for review, etc. So I posted it again, but still no confirmation... So I might be guilty of this.
I am a new user and admittedly posted more or less the same point twice and are waiting for approval now. Is there a “pending post” section or something similar where I can check the status of the approval process?
I tried to post something yesterday and just about managed it. Can we have a preview button so we know it's ready to post and how it look like and could any errors preventing it from being posted be clear and prominent?
We have to pick a category and on my browser (Google chrome kubuntu 20:04) on the category drop down box doesn't show what I picked? Also it had a red box round the description box. So was wondering if I had exceeded a character limit or something.
Eventually I managed to post just randomly doing stuff. I am not sure what stopped me in the first place nor why it allowed me to post after all the attempts.
I hope these things can change if possible please.
