The same happened to me. I think the admins are overloaded with instructables and they are slowly approving all of them

I looked at your file and look below each instructable. One says created on and one says posted on.

If it says "created on", it has been caught up in the filters somewhere. (Looks at Arnseb's page) 8th June?!? You'd best PM Fungusamungus and ask him to check it out. They do sometimes forget to clear the filters, especially if things got caught at the weekend. (I'm guessing the word "ammo" tripped the filters. Looking at step 3, it would be good if you could get video of it being used.)

How long is the average wait between publishing and posting because when I look mine up I can't find it.

It usually varies between a few minutes and an hour or two. Any longer, and it may have tripped the filters. If it takes more than a couple of working days to turn up, you need to PM somebody about it (probably fungusamungus?) and let them know.

Ok...Is Fungusamungus one of the people that runs Instructables?
