Crikey, new restaurant added in two days AND an email!

Added a restaurant on Sunday, got an email today (Tuesday) saying it was up. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Congrats--I'm still waiting ( not really) for the two places I wanted to add in August. No adding, no response to email and right now--I could care less!

Sometimes I think stuff just drops through the cracks and gets lost in TA, electronic equivalent of when you read about they demolish a post office and find a bunch of letters behind a wall from 1926 or some such.

My submissions to add are all getting listed in good time, but I haven't gotten an email notification since . . . 1926 I think ;-)

I agree, Joe, I think sometimes things slip through the cracks. If a listing hasn't been added 4 weeks or more after I submitted it, I resubmit it. It usually works better the second time around.

I keep statistics on this. Of the 35 listings that I submitted in the last 30 days, which TA has added to the site, only one took more than a week to process. That one took over a month, but when I resubmitted it, it was added in only 3 days.

Most listings were added in 1-3 days. I should quickly add that these are all new listings, in English, for Canada; I have no idea if TA's performance in other languages or parts of the world is similar.

I started to receive notifications on a regular basis (after a very long drought) on Oct 30, and now I seem to be getting notifications of new listings about 50% of the time.

Whoo-ee. I just submitted three restaurants (in the USA) and they were listed within two days *and* . . . I got notifications on all three :-)
