Instructable not showing! Answered

Four days ago I created a Instructable but its not showing up when I search for it. But if I go to "Published" I can view it and it says that it is published. What is wrong?


Mine hasn't been posted for 10 days! Jeez I though they would be more organised :(

The same happened to me. I think the admins are overloaded with instructables and they are slowly approving all of them

Ok...Maybe it will show up soon then...Hopefully : /

Mine still doesn't show up though. Tere might be a delay between publishig and posting

I looked at your file and look below each instructable. One says created on and one says posted on.

If it says "created on", it has been caught up in the filters somewhere. (Looks at Arnseb's page) 8th June?!? You'd best PM Fungusamungus and ask him to check it out. They do sometimes forget to clear the filters, especially if things got caught at the weekend. (I'm guessing the word "ammo" tripped the filters. Looking at step 3, it would be good if you could get video of it being used.)

How long is the average wait between publishing and posting because when I look mine up I can't find it.

It usually varies between a few minutes and an hour or two. Any longer, and it may have tripped the filters. If it takes more than a couple of working days to turn up, you need to PM somebody about it (probably fungusamungus?) and let them know.

Ok...Is Fungusamungus one of the people that runs Instructables?

I already did last night.

He hasn't pmed back and my instructable still isn't up

Then I resort to my last piece of advice:

Patience, Youngling.

I made a video because I thought you were talking to me. Oh well, I'll post it anyway

Ok. Thanks for the help!...One question. How do you pm? : P

PM = Private Message go to fungus's profile and hit the "private message me" button. Hope it helps you
