There are a number of possible reasons, ranging from a simple hiccup in the internet (try again, does it work?) to something missing from the project itself.

> If you have done a step-by-step, have you got at least three steps, with photos?
> If it's a photo instructable, have you got at least three photos?
> If it's a video, have you added a thumbnail?

If you want, you can post the URL of the project here, or send it to me by PM, and I'll have a look to see if there is anything obvious wrong.

Thanks Kiteman, you are so kind.
I think it's a internet hiccup. I had wanted to choose a different license than the nc-sa, thought that was what caused the problem. When I tried the usual nc-sa license, it was still the same error. It went published after I refreshed the page but didn't enter it in any contests I intended to. So I later entered it in contests.
So it's published now, even featured. https://www.instructables.com/id/Fenugreek-herb-and-flaxseed-oil-rolls/

Having the same issue with our "how to build an email parser from scratch" article. Is there any movement here?

It is published now, and featured, what a good result.
Thank you for your compliment for my recipes. Do you like cooking too?

I enjoy European deserts and can follow recipes reasonably successfully
as a chemist following a step instructable.

Whenever I take to a kitchen this cook gains weight easily.....
So I relegate these hands to tasters limbo :-)

It's not possible to not enjoy those dessert, then there is the consequence. Eat it or not eat it, it's a hard decision either way.
