 Nope, you're doing exactly the right thing.
 The default view (generally called Mapnik) of the OSM data is marked for 
 re-rendering (about) every Wednesday. This means there's always a delay between 
 your data entry and the results being shown.
 We have other views of the data updated more often (and by request). If you 
 click the little plus icon in the top right hand corner of the map, you'll see 
 an option labelled "Osmarender". This view is updated much more quickly, and an 
 update can be requested via http://informationfreeway.org/
 Anyway, looks like that postbox is now rendering in Mapnik:
 The Mapnik layer detects if a layer hasn't been redrawn since the last Wednesday 
 export, and adds it to the re-render queue if it's stale.
