My instructable does not appear to be published. Answered

I've created an Instructable at https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-moving-Sirius-Black-Wanted-poster-with-an/

Everything seems to be fine but it's not showing up on any of the "recent" lists and it's not getting any views, even if I send the direct link to other people to open.  Normally I wouldn't care much but it's been submitted to a few contests.  Does anybody have any ideas on what could be going wrong?

1. Check your email inbox. If you've had the "entry received" emails, then you're safe on that front.

2. The filters are triggered automatically, but cleared by humans - it takes time, and even HQ sometimes go to bed. If you've had the contest emails, but the project hasn't shown by the end of the day, send an email to service@instructables.com

Thanks Kiteman. I implemented some of your suggestions and it now shows up. Thanks!

I've noticed the same thing.

Sometimes, an 'ible takes a day or so to get through the filters, and gets stuck.

But I've been noticing quite a few glitches and bugs lately with published instructables.
