When you submit a Birdline, it displays the average time to publication over
the past week. This is often less than 6 hours, which I think is pretty good,
but is still often too late for you to see something the same weekend. In
order to get lower response times, recipients could opt to receive unmoderated
postings. This could be implemented in the current Birdline setup, as a second
page of yet to be moderated postings.

Finally, there is a human element to this too - currently all Birdline
reports are vetted by moderators. This inevitably means a lag between when a
sighting is reported to Birdline and when the sighting appears on the web
site. Adding the requirement to include sufficient detail to allow mapping
of the sightings is not going to accelerate this
