Instructable not showing up in recent or search? Answered


I published this instructable today a few hours ago https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-cheap-disposable-camera-capacitor-bank/ and it still has not shown up in the recent list for technology/electronics where I posted it.

It doesn't even show up in search when I copy and paste the title of the instructable directly into the search bar! Something must be wrong here...

What could be causing this? The instructable defiantly is published so that is not the issue.

The most likely (99.999%) answer is that it has been caught up in the site's automated filters.

Relax - as soon as a human being gets a chance to clear the filters, it will hit the public lists.

In the meantime, feel free to send the URL to your friends, or advertise it via the usual social media routes.

Thanks for the reply. That makes sense I guess.

Just wondering, I added copyright markings to most of the pictures. Could this be the cause? The filters thinking its some kind of spam?

Its just I have seen a few of my pictures appear elsewhere online so I thought I would put a small copyright water in some of the pictures.

I could remove the copyright watermark from most of the images if needed, but there are one or two I would like to keep that info in as I am quite proud of one or two of them
