My published instructable keeps being unpublished to a draft Answered

As the title says, my recent instructable ( https://www.instructables.com/id/Digispark-Contro... ) keeps getting unpublished, becoming a draft. I have to go to the edit button and then publish it again.

It has been submited to the rc contest and approved. Could this be a reason for this to happen, like a bug?

Why is this happening?

Thank you

Hi there,

It looks live presently. However, when it was unpublished, was there a message left by a community manager? Sometimes things aren't publishable, so we'll ask for photos in all steps or other things required for a project to be eligible to be published.

If you haven't seen it yet, the featuring guidelines also give a lot of tips to help improve the quality of your content so we can put it out in front of more people. It's worth a look: https://www.instructables.com/topics/Featuring-Checklist/

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, I had to edit, then hit publish to have it live again. Second time I had to do this since yesterday.
I had no message left, nothing, that's why I find it odd. :/

Thanks! :)

And it keeps going back to a draft, forcing me to republish it almost daily... :(
