Vendor Search How long does it take?

    Heya

    tossed up some Potted Coffee Plants on my vendor for sale hours and hours ago. How long does it take the vendor search function to actually 'find' and 'list' them.

    Most things take less than an hour, in fact most only minutes. Is it that each time something 'new' is added to the game, some dev has to remember to add them to a data base?

    For the last publish (or the one before, can't remember for sure), they had to do something akin to purge and rebuild the search database so that new items would show on vendor search.
    I am guessing this will be needed again.

    Hmm Seriously Well if that is the case it is a very sorry state of affairs and as part of the publish it should be an automatic thing that new stuff is added to said data base before it leaves the test centre. To have stuff go 'live' is pretty remiss and a very bad design flaw.
