    I have a feeling I am getting rejected posts by a moderator. In the past 4 or 5 months I only made 2 replies and they haven't shown up. It was just a question or two for each and nothing controversial or against the forum rules. Is it a mistake or my own personal error?

    Just post some more.

    Many forums don't trust the first couple of posts of a new user, as a way to avoid getting spammed. Once you have shown that your posts are valid, the software will trust you more.

    Looking at your posting history, it shows "1 to 4 of 4" so it looks like most of your posts are still around.

    I have a similar problem. I tried to post a thread about a week ago but it has not appeared. I only have 1 prior post so it said the new post must be approved by a moderator. Not unexpected, but I've gotten no approval nor rejection. My initial post went through pretty quickly so I began to wonder if the forum had eaten the new one. After a day I tried messaging the mod of that forum just to see if it had made it into the system, but have received no response. I waited a couple more days and then sent an admin feedback message, but again there was no response. I don't know if my new thread was eaten by the forum, or if it's sitting in a queue somewhere waiting to be looked at. I would love to contribute but my efforts have been met with silence.
