newly created Instructable not showing up in Recent section or search results Answered

I recently posted this Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/12V-180kV-A-Battery-Powered-Marx-Generator-and-int/). However, it seems to have been caught in the filters like many others before it (I'm thinking the word "Communism" set off the alarms). I have looked over several other threads concerning this issue and all seem to have been handled. I figured I'd ask anyway because I have a few questions:
How long does it typically take for a filtered Instructable to be manually approved? Will this affect the Instructable's approval for a contest that closes today? Will the Instructable appear at the top of the Recent section when it is approved or will it be offset?

Thanks!

I/m having trouble as well - posted my ible yesterday and it hasn't shown up - https://www.instructables.com/id/Pro-quality-pickup...

Wondering if mine will show up in the "recent" section as well :-)

Thanks!

Typically, if your project doesn't show up within about half an hour, you've been caught in the automatic filters.

The filters get cleared during Californian office hours, so, as I type, they will just be getting to the job now. If it isn't clear within about 8-10 hours of the time of this post, drop an email to service@instructables.com and ask them to release it.
