Just to give you an example, Shawn posted this at 1.30pm. Nothing has
appeared on the Met List. Not even postings and I have made several. I'm
not getting up your nose Art, but I feel your members need some real
time instead of out of date and delayed responses. I don't know if
you're having problems with your server but I'd really appreciate an
Just my $1.50 AU

I don't know if anybody else is noticing but feeds coming through from
the Met List are delayed and in batches, which is cool but sometimes it
can cause complications. Without putting any names in place or promoting
any body, I got a batch the day before. I constantly monitor what's
coming down the pipeline then all of a sudden .. Bang! I get all these
replies in one block. Some had been sent the day before, some have been
sent on the current day, the times just don't add up.
But one person in particular posted an ad, he sent it at 3 something AM
and then at 1.30 PM a batch came through with maybe 12 listings on the
Met List that had been sent quite some time ago. I was interested in the
ad, so I immediately clicked on it and the auction had finished.
So for those that are placing ads, maybe you should get them in a week
ahead of schedule, because I'm definitely not receiving them until
everything is finished.
Just some thought and no animals or meteorites were harmed during this
