I am a very unhappy zombie.

Look at me, I'm hideous! I tried to prepare everyone for the Zombie Apocalypse, but I published my instructable and it hasn't appeared in "Recent" yet! Since nobody was ready to combat the undead, I was overrun and turned into one of them!

But seriously, it's been like eight hours since I published and it still hasn't shown up. The last three or four 'ibles I made did the same thing, one of them took a day and half to show up. By this point it won't even show up in the first page of recent instructables. How am I supposed to get people to see this if it takes this long to show up? What gives?!?!?

****UPDATE 7/17 @ 7:40pm****

Well, it STILL hasn't been added to the recent list! Now I guess it'll have to wait until after the weekend. Grumble grumble grumble . . .

****UPDATE 7/18 @ 9:40am****

Thanks to Lemonie for spotting my instructable . . . buried eight pages deep in the recent list! Somehow, despite the fact that I didn't publish until thursday 7/16 (I didn't even take any of the pictures until wednesday) it says I published it tuesday. It's entirely possible that it's been on the recent list the entire time, just pushed three or four pages back from where I expected to find it. I don't know what's going on here, but I don't like it. I may try to unpublish it and then republish as an entirely new instructable to see if it'll get bumped up, but I don't know. What if it gets caught by the filters again and doesn't show up for several days?

If any of the admins read this thread, please look into this for me!

I see you have cause to cheer up now. Good luck in the contest.

As Zombie guides go it's pretty good, in fact as compared to every other one I can remember it is the top. But it's a borderline instructable. For something that documents what you've made or done I think you're there, being slow to come through surprises me since we end up flagging SPAM that obviously didn't have any trouble...

Thanks Lemonie. I actually did this one partially because I was disappointed in most (though not all) of the other Zombie instructables.
Yes I can see that - has it turned up yet? Yes it has, oh good. L

Really? I went seven pages back in the recent, well past the instructables that were published about the same time I published mine (it should show up somewhere between Sound Bracelet by JellyWoo and Dr. Horrible Goggles by Goldensurprise) and I didn't see it.
And here we are:
another one. Check your tags?

Oh dang, I bet this guy beats me to my next instructable: The Pocket Sized Ombie Survival Kit!
It's a LOL Dang ombies.... L
Re: tags You have: offbeat & life , zombie, pocket sized, altoids, horror, funny, humor, max brooks, z, day, survival altoids? you forgot "KNEX" dude! But I'd have expected a related on the recent one that's only tagged with: offbeat and zombie (managed to spell that one right...) L
