ALL RECENT Answered

Hello, what determines which new Instructables appear in the ALL RECENT page?   I've submitted 6 total, and only 1 has shown up in the ALL RECENT category.   Is it done randomly, or does the administrator pick and choose them?   

I ask since those that appear on the All Recent list seem to get hundreds more views than those that do not.   I realize that some are Featured, but I'm referring to the All Recent pulldown.

So it has nothing to do with having a Pro account? I was thinking of upgrading to Pro, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of additional features. If I worked for Instructables, I'd brainstorm on how to make it more attractive. Some ideas might include having new projects posted by Pro members appear at the top of All Recent. Maybe have the word PRO with a gold star appear in the corner of the preview for ideas uploaded by pro members. How about a slightly larger member Image for Pro members. I think there are quite a few inexpensive options to make the Pro membership more attractive to potential users.

Correct, nothing to do with pro. Selling Pros aren't our moneymakers. It is more of a perk, and then we award them to featured authors. I'm not sure if they are going to add more to it at this point.

Everything should go to recent, sometimes things get caught in the filters and that delays thing.

Thanks Penolopy. Oddly, shortly after I posted this, my other posts appeared. Like you said, maybe caught in a filter or something.
