newly created Instructable not showing up in Recent section or search results Answered

I recently posted this Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/12V-180kV-A-Battery-Powered-Marx-Generator-and-int/). However, it seems to have been caught in the filters like many others before it (I'm thinking the word "Communism" set off the alarms). I have looked over several other threads concerning this issue and all seem to have been handled. I figured I'd ask anyway because I have a few questions:
How long does it typically take for a filtered Instructable to be manually approved? Will this affect the Instructable's approval for a contest that closes today? Will the Instructable appear at the top of the Recent section when it is approved or will it be offset?



The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Typically, if your project doesn't show up within about half an hour, you've been caught in the automatic filters.

The filters get cleared during Californian office hours, so, as I type, they will just be getting to the job now. If it isn't clear within about 8-10 hours of the time of this post, drop an email to service@instructables.com and ask them to release it.
