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.
