Ible delayed posting no longer new. Answered

If you have an ible delayed of being posted for who knows what reason. When it gets posted it gets posted in the spot that it would of been  originally.
Example, on 6/1 i published 3 ibles in one day. One posted in 10 minutes. The other 2 posted on 6/4. Now the two late posts do not get put at the top with the new ibles, no it gets put in at the date it was first submitted.
My variable voltage supply took 6 days to post.
So to find it you have to go through many pages of ibles to locate it. IT does not get posted as the newest ible.
I had sent a msg to service@instructables but never did get a real person.   

If peoples ibles are delayed for some flagging issue or what ever it would be nice to know what to avoid in the future.
I have gotten a tip on some issues that may trip the filters, short keywords, not common or unrecognizable keywords. Such as eek.
In msg or forums delays maybe from short question with active links..

These are tips are from someone that has been observing these things and are not a locked in rule.  

Altho these are somewhat of gripes it is not anything that will stop me from posting ibles.
I realy gain from Instructables. Before i joined here i never heard of Arduino now i am writing small sketches and manipulating larger ones.

I feel your frustration,
One thing I learned was never to post Friday afternoon through Monday morning.
that is when staff overview goes to nil.

Although, under the new collective bargaining agreements with Robot, it seems there is a designated driver/pedicab peddler on staff who seems to go through some of the admin stuff on weekends. It's still a quirk where something caught in the filters will only reappear on the recent lists in its original timeslot bypassed by more recent ones that were not filtered. Same kind of quirkiness when you do not really know when to see your ible featured on the homepage if it has been featured. It will be bumped faster through the rotation if there are more featured ibles selected. But that is the charm of ibles, I guess.

I'm not sure, but isn't Charm a nuclear particle ?
And what about Quirkies ?

I see i did submit on a Saturday.
As a general rule pedicabs are not very fast.
A tricycle would be a better choice


I used to like Lucky Charms and Trix, heck i would eat a bowl of them now if they were here.
