It's probably something to do with it being a duplicate project.

I searched and there wasn't a single instructable like it, it was not my north star one by the way.

It was how to survive a nuclear blast. I don't know maybe it's just that it won't show up in the contests or in the recently posted section in it's topic on any of the three computers I tried.

Oh, sorry. Hang on...

Right - when I search for nuclear blast, it's the first hit, but you're right, it's gone from the recent lists.

That confuses me - projects that have been removed from the recent lists (for whatever reason) are not supposed to turn up in searches, so it's either a bug in the search or a bug in the lists.

My best advice now is to email service@instructables.com

I have sent an email. Thanks for your help. Nothing has changed. I am waiting for a reply to my e-mail as we speak.

It's the weekend, so you may not get a solution until Monday.

It seems that sometimes when an ible is featured, it will not show up on the recent lists. It will appear there later on sometime and will show up on a previous page when the more recent stuff has filled up. Has it been featured or just wonky?

It hadn't been featured, so, wonky, I think.
