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.

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....

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

The hub I published this morning says not featured but has a good score and ads? I'm on my phone so I can't edit it. This is not a low quality hub though.

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...
