    While the message says QAP can take up to 24 hours, I haven't had a QAP last more than a little over two hours in a long time.  I'm now on 5 plus hours in limbo waiting on QAP.   Wonder if they've changed it to be longer or something?  I do see others in my news feed who have published today and don't seem to have ads (quality ones that will likely get them).  I also see one published 3 hours ago that does.  Very weird and not the norm I've seen here.  Obviously if it goes past 24 hours I'll contact the team but just wanted to know if anyone noticed a new publication trend in the last few days.  I've never had a QAP problem and hate that it's still in the no ads/no crawl limbo.

      I heard a couple talking about a glitch in the system - yesterday I think.

        Okay. Good to know.  Going back into my newsfeed I see quality hubs from as long as eight hours ago that have not been through QAP.  It's weird that I see one that went through at 3 hours.  I thought maybe the MTurkers were backed up.

      The hub I published on Monday only took a couple of hours to get through QAP, but the one I published today has taken over eleven hours so far. Glad I saw your thread, because I was also wondering.

        Same here, Jayne.  I published one yesterday that just took a couple of hours.  At least we are all in the same boat so if it is a system wide glitch, they'll fix it.

            Mine too!  Finally.  Do I dare try it again today?

      L.C. my latest hub took two days to make it thru QAP. Odd because I had over 40 comments on the post before it was approved.

    I see some in my thread from 7 hours ago---also ones that would not have a problem getting ads, that have no ads.  Must be a mostly site wide thing.   Guess I'll wait to publish the one I have in queue until I see what's going on.

    It seems that almost everyone is experiencing longer QAP than we usually have.  Except for when it first started I can't remember the last time it took that long.  And I had found a typo and was waiting and waiting to edit.

      L.C. you can still edit before the hubs are approved. Click on them in your account area and edit away!

        Yes, but it resets its place in the QAP queue when you do that and I have seen HP staff advise people to wait until its through.  As long as the process is taking now I did not want another 12 hours of no-follow added to my article.

          That's good to know. I didn't know that, but it makes perfect sense. It's as if you've started the clock all over again.

    For the first time ever mine took about 24 hours...I was actually getting worried it wouldn't pass...phew!

    I published two hubs yesterday.  The first one went through in just a few hours.  The second one is going on 16 hours and still in pending mode.  And it was crawled but the bots will register it as no index.  It's very strange.

      That explains why the hub I published four days ago still isn't appearing in search results.
