I think this is the most likely explanation. Publishing was down for at least 48 hours. If we have a queue of 50 missions that only comes out to about one per hour. There might be more missions where the person gaveul up and canceled the publish, but even if you double the number of missions you're still only looking at one per half hour. If the average publish takes only 10-15 minutes, a lot of times you wouldn't even notice.

This period also included part of the weekend when the largest amount of missions were likely to be published, so during the week its likely less bad. Assuming even a couple missions can be published concurrently you'd hardly ever encounter the queue.

I know from personal experience that in the past my missions have sometime taken over an hour to publish, whereas they usually only require 15 minutes, so that was probably the queue in action. S7 probably just exposed the existence of the queue since there was a UI change (we can now cancel publish without withdrawing our mission whereas before we could only stop it by withdrawing it altogether).

Publish came through for me too during the night. Thanks for the fix.

I accidently started a new thread for publishing issues because mine is not stopping at 0%... rather it seems to just keep stopping at 50%. I have tried cancelling and withdrawing it then republishing but I seem to have the same issue. It takes about 4minutes to climb from 0% to 50% but then nothing.

Am I being too impatient or is it actually freezing at 50%? My mission is VERY complex with triggers and has lots of objects... but Im not sure how long I should be giving it to publish here.

Does anyone out there with massive missions know how long the publish could take? In the past ive only had to wait 30min at most, but I can see the bar still going up... this time it just stops.

Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
