In my projects page, there is a tiny lock by my project name.

Please, some help? Thank you very much in advance :)

 Sorry I missed this when it was originally posted.  

You should have received an email when you created your project that explains our workflow - all projects are created private on this site.  To prevent spam and keep the large number that are abandoned out of our public pages we keep them private until some basic criteria are met - a license chosen, and some initial code or documentation about the project.  

Once that is done, send an email to to let us know and we'll be happy to make it public and move it into one of our communities, if appropriate.
