I'm not sure why your posts were deleted, Casey. I doubt there was anything you did wrong, and I'm sure that if any of us posted in the wrong forum, they would be moved rather than deleted.
Did you actually start the threads or were your posts replies? I know that spam gets deleted if it's reported, so if your posts were in a thread started by someone like that, then it could have gone with the rest of that thread.
You could ask Ramsekh. He's a moderator that does come in as often as he is able to.
