[FAQ] Why isn't my Instructable showing up? Answered

Here is a question that is often asked on this site.

Why isn't my Instructable showing up in the Most Recents?
Well there could be a variety of reasons:
  • Be patient, it may not have gone through the filter yet.
  • Is your instructable lacking images? Sometimes instructables without images fail to go through the filter.
  • Your instructable may have been caught by the spam filter. If it has, contact anyone in the Instructable team, and they will check it out for you.
  • On weekends, where there is an influx of people posting projects, it may take longer than normal for it to show up in the Most Recents. Just Be Patient
  • After a few days, and it is not showing up, contact the Instructable team.

I hope this helps!

I just added a new instructable and noticed that ALL of my past ones are gone! Where did they go? One was a members choice instructable too!

Could you post your query as a bug report? The only two published I'bles I see in your profile are both recent; and your statistics seem awfully low for a two-year member.

Its been 6 days since It says mine was posted... Yet when I search for my instructable, only the slideshow of it that I posted comes up... Just wondering if the fact that I unpublished it like 10 seconds after I posted it because I caught a Typo would make a difference (yes I re-published it, within a day of un-publishing it)

My Instructable fits the criteria for a proper Instructable, and I submitted it 2 days ago. I don't understand why it has not shown up. Who am I supposed to contact on the Instructable team about this?

My instructible is labled as "published", but I can't find it anywhere but on ly instructibles "published" tab. It's almost been 24 hours.....does that mean that if 24 hours pass, someone will tell me what's going on?

. I can see Mod a Tommy 20 and How To Make A Reminder Band.
. If you are talking about another one, I'm guessing that something in your iBle triggered the automatic filter(s). Robot doesn't do weekends very often, so it may be Monday (or Tuesday; Robot is very busy) before it is approved and made available to the public.

It's the Tommy 20 mod. That's what I figured.... I'll see what happens tomorrow. Thank you.

It does not seem like a complete instructable. It has two pictures, vague directions, and it does not seem like there is much of a point to it at all. Chances are it caught the filter. Edit it, and elaborate on it, then contact the Instructables team.

One of the tags is KRISS, but none of the tags yield any results.

As it says: majority of Instructables will be "online" within 24 hours, if they don't make it, a member of the Instructables staff will most likely comment on the un-published Instructable saying why it didn't pass, so you know what needs working on. ;-)
