      Description

      When a user does various things in the system there is a Comments option that can be used to enter comments. These comments write to the mdl_comments table. In the GUI they are added via a text box that has a "Save Comment" link under it. In larger Moodle sites when "Save Comment" is clicked it takes a few seconds for the comment to render and show on the screen (this is an AJAX call).

      The improvement that I am suggesting is that something be added to show that its being processed. The delay is causing users to think that their submissions did not take, so they keep clicking the link multiple times until the first instance of it renders on the page. This in turn causes numerous emails and alerts to get sent to instructors.
