LoL the abuse the Foundry takes amazes me to no end.

On one end, the user abuses it to cheat.

On the other end, Cryptic abuses it by making it impossible to use.

To my knowledge, Cryptic has specifically said that missions that qualify need to have at least 5 reviews and have an average playtime of 20 minutes or more.

If missions that meet those qualifications aren't showing up as qualifying, it can mean one of two things. Either there are more qualifications that they haven't mentioned, or there is a bug.

Creation should be back next week baring any unforeseen problems. In the mean time, it might be worth checking your missions to make sure they made the transition bug free.

I had a couple in the works but none published, now I can't even get access to them- the 'create content' button is blacked out.

Someone PLEASE tell me that the review feature is disabled because I've tried 2 of mine and both were very buggy early on and they were fine before.

Hmm I can see it from both points of view.

On Cryptic's side:

Before people play it the game has no idea how long it takes and whether it would count. At the same time if it lets it through everything before the 5 reviews then it could easily be exploited. People can play it over and over without reviewing so it never leaves the review period.

For the Author's side:

Pretty simple, like you said how do we get the first 5 reviews?

Is there a safe middle ground? Or will we have to reply on people who go out of their way to play missions that do not reward them.

Check out my Foundry missions:
Standalone - The Great Escape - The Galaxy's Fair - Purity I: Of Denial - Return to Oblivion
The Defenders - Duritanium Man - The Improbable Bulk - [WIP] Commander Rihan

Of mine, i have noticed that four are marked as not qualifying even though 1 of them should take at least 40 minutes. The other three are certainly longer than 1 that does qualify.

I'm thinking that "drops" may count against you time-wise. If that is the case Cryptic should really look into revising it based upon full play-throughs.
