Is the Makerspace Contest Effecting 'Ible Featured Times? Answered

I was just curious if the Makerspace contest is effecting the time it takes to get your 'ible featured? And if so, by how many days?

For example, my last featured 'ible wasn't featured for a few days after posting (and I didn't post it over a weekend or holiday or anything). Usually, the featuring (if it happens) happens much sooner. But I was just thinking maybe the Makerspace contest is effecting the times because there are so many more instructables getting published right now (some of the prizes in the contest are for highest number of instructables published and highest number of featured 'ibles). 

Your thoughts? Has anyone else experienced this, too?

Thanks!

This is an interesting question. I'm curious about how much the contest has effected the rates of publishing. Has there been a dramatic increase or is it similar to other contests with valuable prizes?

As it gets closer to the end, I imagine things will ramp up even more (last year my team published 150 instructables in the last week and we still didn't win!)

Projects get Featured when they get seen by somebody with the power to Feature - maybe you just posted at a busy time.

Yes, I agree. But I was just wondering if the timing was busier in general while this Makerspace contest is going on :)

Hard to tell! My latest one might simply be a dud.

i agree, our recent ones could just be duds. But have you found that they haven't featured yours for a few days after you've posted it?

That's happened to me before, yes.

I went over to your most recent one, so you have another view at least! :-)

Lol...thanks! Actually they just featured my second most recent one. And the two before that were the ones I was referring to. :)
