It used to be when you posted a book it would come up soon after on books posted today. It went from 9:36 to 11:16 in a few minutes.

It now takes approx 15 minutes per R&R.  I miss the immediate posting, the way it was.

They had to make this change after the server crash. Think about all the information the servers have to process for each posting. I am sure it put a lot of strain on them!
