Seems my sock puppet I'ble isn't showing up in the filters... If it doesnt pop up in a day or so, who whould i email?

You go to a member's page (like Randofo), and send them a private message, saying something like "My instructable may have gotten caught in the filters, could you please see why and pull it out for me?"

Ask nicely!

Ah, thought as much... ta matey :)

 Sometimes an instructable will get stuck in the filters, and has to be looked at by a staff member before it is published.  Give it a day or two, and then be concerned.

It's happened to me before, and about a thousand others.  

See www.instructables.com/tag/

Well you said be concerned if it didn't show up in 2 days, well it's been more than that now and it still hasn't. Or is it just me...

Definitely - looking at the tags of the slideshows in question, they are almost certainly well and truly wedged in the filters.

 You mean that "gun" "assault" "sniper" and "rifle" are words that get caught up in the filters?  There seems to be nothing violent, destructive, or potentially lethal about them!

Is that a custom or are Lego manufacturing RPGs?


It came from a site selling modified minifigs.

The main body & head are original, but they replace the printing on the torso and add their own custom accessories.

It was BrickArms, but I picked the image up some time ago after the Daily Mail had a tizzy about glorifying terrorism.

The Mail again... Yeah thanks.


The I'ble only has an intro, that might be causing the site to think there's something funny about it.
