Waiting for publication means that ASM is unable to access your ark server using your public IP. Things to try 1. Has your Public IP changed? 2. Are your port forwards setup correctly? 3. Get your friend to register your server in his steam favorites. See if they can see it in that list.
Because we need to answer NEW questions. Asking questions that have already been answered takes time away from developing ASM into the best server manager possible.
