I published a new Hub yesterday which as of this writing, is still "pending" and has not been featured.
I noticed when I first hit "publish" that the "You've published another hub!" info box with all of the relevant links/etc. now says that the Quality Assessment Process may take "up to 48 hours." If I'm not mistaken, it used to say "up to 24 hours." When did the "pending" period double? Is there that much of a backlog?
I'm not complaining, just idly curious. I'm used to most of my stuff making it thru QAP in 12 hours or less -- if I finish a hub before bed, it's usually featured by the time I get up the next morning. This is the first time in a long while that's taken longer than that.
Christy announced the time change in a forum post a couple of months ago.

I had one recently that took three days, well over 48 hours.
Update: the Hub in question is now Featured, so it made it through the fire. Cancel red alert. Situation normal here.
I think that wait time was instituted so that you could have more time to chill and listen to some old heavy metal albums. 12 hours is just not enough.

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this only is aimed at new hubs, not hubs that become un-featured later)One way to do...

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

I have been at HP for 11 months with very few publishing problems. This past week, I've had THREE of my new hubs idled. Two of them were product reviews for the contest, one was political in nature. When the first one was idled, I contacted HP and basically was given no info...

I have a hub published over 24 hours ago.......but the hub is still pending (Little House). However, a hub I published this morning is already reviewed and featured. The one that is still pending is getting a lot of views so I'm anxious for it to go on through. I'm not sure...

Some people have asked why do some Hubs go directly to featured. We are working on ways to get more Hubs featured as quickly as we can and are testing mechanisms for doing it. Right now, there are a small number of Hubbers where our system can process their Hubs immediately based on...
