Not sure what happened.   I could see the contest, but when I went back and submitted about 25 entries, I could not see the contest.

Thank you!  I appreciate your help.   I don't think it was a case of not having the "List Contest In Our Directory"

I don't know how this happens - Honestly - I am not clicking the button - There would be not reason to create a contest with out it being visible.  Can you investigate why this happens?

I can tell that the contest is still out there.   I currently have 2 open contests, plus the one I can't see.   When I tried to create a new contest, here is the message I receive:

Yes - I am the creator of the contest.  After clicking the "create my contest button"  - It was visible.   I then submitted entries to it, then refreshed the page.  The contest is no longer visible.

Beth, after you clicked "Create my contest" button you were redirected to that actual contest page, not all contests page. Contest will always be visible if you are on actual page for specific contest and you can enter images to it, even if it is not listed in our directory.
I have tested situation you described and only way for contest not to be visible in our directory was if I selected for it not to be visible. I could still see contest on its page (as you did when you entered your images) but it wouldn't be visible with other contests.
If you can replicate this issue please do let me know, and please do provide screenshots and exact steps how to make contest invisible from our directory without clicking "No" under "List contest in our directory".

I was directed to the "All Contests"  I went back in and submitted my entries.  It was when I refreshed and clicked on "Open Contests" that I could no longer see the contest.
I create contests quite often and I can tell you with 100% Certainty that I did not touch the "List your challenge" button.

Just checking in again.  The box for "List your challenge" is checked by default - So - unless I unchecked the button - which  I did not - something else was going on

Hi Beth, we tried to replicate what happened but we didn't manage to replicate it. I will try a bit different approach to see if I can replicate it.

Just created another contest - and as I always find - the circle for 
"List contest in our directory" is checked by default.   I will let you know if the contests is not visible after I submit images to it.

Beth, you set up your contest not to be visible in our directory. I have changed it to be visible, and it is showing now in open contests.

Please make sure, when you make contest, to select "Yes" on this line:
"List your challenge in our directory?"

I did not click or un-click the "List the contest" button.  What would be the point in creating the contest?

Just and FYI - I have successfully created several contests since this was reported.  I I can tell you with 100% certainty- that I absolutely did not "Uncheck" the "List our challenge in our directory" button.    I see other people have had this issue before.

Hi Beth, there was issue before that only top 16 community contests were visible, that has been solved within days from reporting. I suspect that was the issue with your contest. All contests should be visible now.

I am waiting for an answer to my inquiry about a Challenge that had advanced to Voting, that has disappeared.  At the beginning, there was one person who entered 3 totally unrelated images, which I DQ'd.  After that there were no submissions, and Jasenka entered it for 2 days to give time for more entries.  I submitted enough to get the total up to 30.  So in actuality my images are the only valid ones in the Challenge.  Then, last night it was gone from Current Voting.  It is due for awards to be announced on 8-20-2020.  What has happened to that one?
