Why my instructable it not appearing on recent instructables list or even in the search? Answered

I posted an Instructable 2 days ago, and it's not appearing on the recent instructables list or in the search. Any idea why is that? has any body had the same problem?

This is my instructable. DIY Multimedia LED Projector (video manual)

The simple answer is that it somehow tripped the filters.

Unfortunately, it tripped the filters on the weekend - the site staff are human, and need time off just like the rest of us.

If it doesn't show up on Tuesday, PM one of the admins (probably Randy or Ed), and ask them to check it.

(For what it's worth, I can't see why it would have tripped the filters.)

It may have been caught by the filters. It will require verification that it's not dangerous or offensive by the HQ staff when they return to work after the weekend. They'll probably get to see it thisafternoon GMT.

Seconded - this is normal for it to take a while if something misses the filter check and then over the weekend - if nobody sees it then it wont go.

I've looked at your instructables before and have been impressed.  The thing that sets your's apart from lots is that your's actually look finished!  They are not duct taped together.  Except the camera ring light but that one looks appropriate.

 Thank you so much! Your projects and intructables are very neat!

 That's right, but the weir thing is that I can see other instructables that had been published after mine. That's why I'm a bit worry.

The others that are visible didn't trip filters like yours. Looking through it there's nothing offensive in there so it should get approved within a few hours of the staff in Los Angeles getting in for work :)

Thank you very much for your answer. This never happened to me with the other Instructables I made so I was a bit worry.
