When I add a personal note to a book, occasionally the yellow post-it note shows up right away, but most of the time I have to go back to the note and save it a second time.  Is there a trick to this or am I missing something simple, like it is on the book but doesn't always show up immediately?

TIA

I don't have the problem now that I am using firefox.  On IE I had problems similar to this and locking up.

I have that problem with Firefox, too.  So weird.

Sometimes I have that problem, and sometimes I don't.  Don't have any solution for you either, but if someone does, I'd sure like to have it.  Pat

I have firefox also.  When it doesn't show up right away I hit the reload button.

I just never had an issue since switching to firefox - very weird.    Maybe it is the same thing with personal messages. that happened in IE and Firefox.   Even after reading the PM and navigating way from the page it will show personal message waiting for a couple of minutes - drives me crazy.

Well, I tried an experiment - - I went to someone's bookshelf and added some of their books to my RL. I also added a note re: which PBSer has it. I only saved the note once per book.  Out of 12 books newly added to my RL , 9 had the notes attached and 3 didn't.  It may be that I forgot those 3 entirely.

Anyways, since it appears that my notes are on the books after all, I'll just save the extra steps. I don't need it to show up on the screen immediately.

Hope this also helps some of you. Thanks for your responses!

I have IE and see the same problem sometimes. You don't have to do the note a second time though. It's there, it just won't show up till the page reloads (you go to a different page and come back OR hit the F5 key)

Using IE, my notes don't always post immediately.  Refresh the page and they appear :-)
