So I tried to post something, and the response was "Your comment will appear after it is approved."

It did not appear later, and there is no message or other indication why it was not approved.

What does this mean?

    Huh I just had that happen with a post....no hyperlinks and no profanity or potential profanity or even robot perceived profanity...just the moderation message that it won’t post until “approved”. Sad state of affairs me thinks.

    MODERATOR'S NOTE:
    Huh I just had that happen with a post.
    And I explained the issue to you in a PM.
    no profanity or potential profanity
    Actually, that was the issue. You made a typo on the word "shut." :)

    @ufmomfriend You used the name of a commercial site that is blocked.

    As an FYI, the pop-up message has been changed, and now reads:
    Your post has been flagged for moderation. Your comment will appear only if it is approved. If your post violates the TOS it will not be published. Common violations include disallowed links and profanity.

    Hi there! I just had my most recent post flagged as well, as far as I know, no words could have spelled out profanity, nor did I include links, it was just a post about letters of recommendations - I unfortunately didn't save as a draft so I don't know how to look back on it, would it be possible to get a PM from a moderator to find out what the issue was? Just so I know what to avoid posting in the future, thank you!

    @Lorenne I'm not sure what the issue was, but it is now posted.

    @skieurope Oh, thank you so much!

    I had one that was moderated simply because I had a word in Chinese (or was it Korean) in it. Are posts with other languages other than English automatically flagged?

    Automatically? No. Those are deleted/edited manually. Per forum rules:
    All posts will be in English.

    We'll make exceptions for foreign words/phrases that are commonly known by English speakers e.g. (hasta la vista or a la mode), but mods will automatically delete words that are not in the Latin alphabet.

    Hi what were wrong with mine? I've edited my post several times and it keeps telling me that it's flagged?

    Nothing. The first post from a new user sometimes needs to wait for a human to verify that it is not spam. Your post now appears @cookie321
