Hi D C,
We recently upgraded our platform that hosts our community and with the upgrade, the option became available. It's on the to-do list of things to fix. For now, the best option is to put it into Forums section!
And DC because you didn't change any of the default setting in posting to the community, your first post actually was also posted to the "forums". So Tracy is totally correct, you should always post to the forums for now.
[But the forums are evolving, so stay tuned!]
