Probably somebody zealous raised them as "uncomplete submissions" in the minute after ;)

The pictures should still be in your account.

Rebuild the pages with more complete information and narrative and all should be well. Some new pages get posted with little information and no indication that it will be completed in a particular time frame.

What kind of pages were they -- mountain/rock, trip reports, albums? If they were mountain/rock, did pages for those peaks already exist on summitpost?

Which mountains were they?

Looking through your photos, other than Stoud Peak, which you have one photograph of, all other photos you have already have existing mountain pages. Duplicates are not allowed, so it could be that if they were dupicates, they were deleted.

If it was a trip report, you can make it "unique" by adding your own flavor to it. Persistence counts ! Please, don't give up just because the (incomplete?)
pages were deleted.

The name of the site itself is a bit confusing for newcomers who don't take the time to read the "New to SummitPost?" section.
Since ages many new people keep posting mountain pages again and again, thinking that a page is what should indeed be a summit log entry (or trip report in the best case). Instead of raw removal, perhaps there are cases in which elves could show more understanding, and only change the type into TR/Album attached to the concerned mountain. Especially when it contains nice photos or a consequent piece of text.

Yes. There should be a note when adding new submissions that says to check if the mountain already exist. SP used to have one, but it was changed.

Anyway, Mooner nice job on the route page you have added.

If you find out why the pages were deleted (i.e. if they were duplicates), let us know.

Mooner, I deleted the pages, and not wantonly.

By the end of the weekend, I will send you a PM explaining why and offering suggestions to help.
