Some pieces get curated immediately, others take a while, but yes, if it takes a few weeks, the effect isn’t quite what it could be, and viral spreading is unlikely.
It’s always good to see a piece that you’ve worked hard on to get up to curation standard actually be curated, but so many times nothing happens.

But kept this “offscreen” as it were, rather than saying it out loud.
