Instructable not showing up

Hi all,
I recently posted a new 'ible but it's not showing up on the recent section of the home page, nor can it be found in the category that I posted it in.  It's also only gotten the views from my friends that I sent a link to when I published it.  Can someone check this for me or let me know if I'm doing something wrong?  The turnaround time when I publish is usually very fast so wondering if there's a problem.

My 'ible link is here:

Thanks!

Clever idea, writing it all down. Link works great now.

Thanks for checking it out! However, I still cannot find the 'ible doing a search nor browsing in the category I submitted it in. It seems only accessible via it's direct link.
Now I understand. Searching does no good. Maybe if you deleted it and resubmitted? Sorry, only thing I can think of.

No worries, thanks for checking it for me. maybe at some point the powers that be will publish it for me. ha!

I've created pictures (in the vein of my favourite humour site: icanhascheezburger.com) for the instructable and republished but it's still not showing up. I'll just veg until I hear something from the Instructable Powers That Be. Thanks!

The pictures don't improve it as an Instructable but clearly say "joke". Are any of those German animals?

It's poor, and without pictures.
If you had more German in there (i.e. real German phrases), if you had sound clips, if it didn't look like a bit of a joke...
What next Russian Walter Koenig style?

I probably should have made it more obvious that it is a joke and is meant to be viewed, read, and heard like a Mel Brooke's german accent (think Young Frankenstein). I'll consider adding that in for the humor-impaired among us. Thanks

Oh right. Pictures of Mel Brooks and audio clips would have helped. It's hard to get the right message with plain text.

Yeah, I agree...getting the tone (especially when it's a subtle, tongue-in-cheek type) can be pretty difficult over printed/typed medium.

But seriously, maybe the lack of pictures hung it up in the filters as incomplete.

Hi caitlinsdad, Great infographic. I'm thinking it may be the kambucha filter delaying the whole process, although you may be right about having no pictures. I wanted a pic at least just for the front intro page, but couldn't think of anything appropriate for the topic. Thanks! -gian
