Why is my published ible not published?

I published an ible on farming maggots yesterday.

It's not locatable by the search engines and it's not on the Green channel.

Does anyone know why isn't it showing up or what the problem might be?

It wont be publicly available until they update the servers, which usually takes like a day. Since it's the weekend, you may have to wait until Monday. Hope that helps.

Seriously? I've never noticed server updates take that long. There are other ibles published yesterday that show up now.

This ible is viewable to my subscribers.

You'll probably need to wait until Tuesday, not Monday, this week. Monday is/was Labor Day, a national holiday (and the last three-day weekend before fall) in the U.S.

Yea, I've had it happen to me when I post on the weekend.

Thanks for your input. I'll see what happens tomorrow.

Weekend, some bits of the site aren't fully-automated, fella needs to push a button or equivalent...

It's probable that your project has triggered the site filters.

During office hours, the filters are cleaned quickly enough that you usually don't notice the delay, but may take up to 24 hours at busy times (most staff have more than several responsibilities).

Since you posted at the weekend, you'll have to wait until the humans come back in on Monday. Depending on the number of other items clogging the filters, your project may not appear until the evening (California time). If it's not there on Tuesday, send an email to service@instructables.com to get it sorted.

You are allowed to pass the URL around for folk to go there directly. The same thing has happened to me in the past, and I simply posted a forum topic with a link to the project so that folk could see the project without having to wait for the filters to be flushed.
