Once an ad unit becomes "inactive" can it be made "active" again?
Talking about ad units, not channels.

When using the ad management feature, an ad unit will become "inactive" if it gets no impressions for X amount of days (I think it's 7?).

If after this number of days I decide I want to use this ad unit again, will it just become "active" automatically if I placed this unit's code on my pages and had it start getting impressions again?

I ask because I did the above about 60 minutes ago, and the ad unit is still listed as "inactive" in my "Manage Ads" tab.

I know there is (coincidently) some updating delay going on today, but I'm not sure if that's playing a role here or if this isn't the way to make an inactive ad unit active again.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, you can re-active ads, but it does take a few hours, even without whatever updation is going on today. I do it all the time.

AdSense units that were created or received no impressions within the last 7 days appear as inactive on your Manage Ads page. If an inactive ad unit starts to generate impressions, then it will appear as active.

I hope that helps you.
