When I try to edit one of my posts, then click 'Edit Post' to finalize the changes, the post is deleted.

I don't think it's deleting the posts, you are a new user and your posts have to be approved for a period of time. Editing a post puts it back into the approval queue so it's not visible until it's approved again.

Belidos is correct you are a new user until you have 3 approved posts your posts will require approval by staff before they can be seen. That 3 includes ones you edit for if you have 3 posts but you edit one it will count as having only 2 approved so your edited post would need approving.

Hope that makes sense.
