Is there a rule I missed?

I posted a thread in the DIY section and it seems to have disappeared without warning. I don't see a sticky in that particular message board about rules, on top of that i read the forum rules and there is nothing that I missed there either. As far as I can tell. I am a little frustrated that the time I took to write that is all for nothing. As I was excited to get some input and to post pictures of my progress...

Not a rule but more of a protocol. Being new here your posts will have to be manually approved until you reach a few posts. This is only the case if they contain pictures, links etc. If it is just text you have no worries.

This prevents spammers from joining and plastering links all over the forum. I approved your thread and should be good now.

There is actually a message that displayed after you hit submit/post, telling you all this, but may have skipped over it.

Actually... you're correct. Might be a good thing to add. It is mentioned in the PM sent to you by one of us though. Once you've established yourself as a 'non-spammer' (you're almost there!), you won't be put through the wringer, so to speak.
