Help panel does not show progress indicator when posting a question
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When you click the "Post" button in the help panel (or mentor question dialog), nothing happens. There's no visual indication that your question is being posted and that you should wait a few seconds.

We should have something, like a pending indication on the "Post" button or on the header of the dialog (the latter would be the default, but we disabled it because it flashed pending states when navigating between panels).

My patch originally did the former, but after talking to @RHo , I changed it to do the latter.
