Where is my instructable ? Answered

I posted an instructable on 4/20/09. Today 4/21/09 it has received 5 views but i cannot find it in any of the catagories i posted it under - outdoors and games. How can it get views and not appear on this site?

By the way, since you've been around I'bles a while, you should have already figured out that you could answer this question for your self by typing your question into the Search box, then refining the results to be either Forum Topics or Answers.

Thanks for the reply. I have seen similar questions posted here. I was just wondering how it was being viewed and i could not find it posted anywhere.I guess everytime an administrator or whoever reviews the 'ibles views it it adds a view to the stats.

Yes, both the admins and your subscribers (if any) will contributed to the views count. Notice that both Lemonie and I were able to find it under your profile, which is not the case for actual unpublished I'bles.

I had a go (just now) with the most obvious tags "Airsoft Devastator Claymore Grenade" - no. Might just be one of those things - give it 24h? L

That's what i was thinking or hopeing. I noticed with my other 'ables yhat when your stats showed 1 view it was less than an hour before it was on the site. But since last night this particular 'able shows 6 views on stats and i could not find it in the catagories i listed it under. I was wondering if i had screwed something up. I put a forstner bit halfway through my left hand and had to type everything one handed.

Do you have anyone who subscribes to you? They get advance (direct) notification whenever you publish. It usually takes the Robot a few hours for a published I'ble to propagate out of the server databases, unless it contains any of a long list of "special" words (as yours does), and needs review by a human for appropriateness.
