 How many days is your relay up and running with out going down and/or
having to reboot? I have found that if one keeps rebooting or the
relay keeps going down, it takes a while for it to be recognized.

Also I have seen where it may take several minutes for the network
status to populate before a relay shows up. The biggest issue I
personally have seen is if one can't stay on line for any length of
time, the relay probably will not show up.

I am sure there may be other reasons, but this has been my observation .
