Scheduled posts never publish

    I have followed all the instructions on scheduling a post
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/schedule-a-post/

    Also read all the forum threads I could find that offer a few suggestions, but none apply or make any difference.
    I’ve tried multiple times with different settings, but no post has ever been published. They all result in a status of “Missed schedule”
    I have recheck time zone
    I have allowed more time into the future for the post schedule and used odd hours/minutes (to give WP servers a better chance…?!)

    Acknowledging the fact I’m using a free service, this is still a major inconvenience. Post scheduling was the #1 feature I wanted when starting a blog, as I will be offering an early morning daily blog release (with up to a week drafted and scheduled in advance). I chose wordpress.com due to the high reviews, reputation and backed up by support engineers.

    In the last 3 days, I’ve yet to see any response from wordpress engineers.
    Community support is wonderful, but none of us are in a position to fix it… only offer a voice to get some attention/pressure put on a resolution.

    Looking back I’ve seen some complaints in April 2012. Then recently in July there have been a whole lot more. It appears a real and recurring bug with this feature is impacting various wordpress.com blogs

    I have a deadline of August 1st where I would hope to have this resolved.

    Thanks very much

    Thanks for that
    I’ve read it and seems you are trying to get staff to look at it – and not turn a blind eye :)
    Guess we can just cross the fingers and wait

    Sorry to double post (can’t edit previous)

    URL to my test post is:
    http://60daysofpurpose.wordpress.com/2012/07/27/schedule-test/
    OR perhaps the preview is needed….
    http://60daysofpurpose.wordpress.com/2012/07/27/schedule-test/?preview=true

    This post will remain active and unchanged for testing and resolution purposes, unless advised otherwise

    I will see what happens in 1 hr when schedule hits…

    Update

    I’d just like to report that my blog has been fixed
    In the last 3 days, (while I was absent from updating/checking) a post that was scheduled and missed, then got published
    http://60daysofpurpose.wordpress.com/2012/07/27/schedule-test/?preview=true

    Today I have made a new post that was scheduled in future, and it too published on time (visited from another browser not logged into wordpress)
    http://60daysofpurpose.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/twitter-test/?preview=true

    Hope everyone else has scheduling working soon (and no further hiccups)
