Thumbs up dines posting to airline "faster" (multiple times a week)

It used to be that RN only posted to the partner (airline or hotel) once a week, dated "paid" on a Wed but showing up on Thu.

But recently each dine is being "paid" separately for me:

09/19/2018 <restaurant> <survey link> <CC#> $xx.xx yyy Miles 09/22/2018
09/17/2018 <restaurant> <survey link> <CC#> $xx.xx yyy Miles 09/21/2018
09/16/2018 <restaurant> <survey link> <CC#> $xx.xx yyy Miles 09/19/2018

And they're showing up one by one (and thus faster) at the airline.

I've noticed this on United MileagePlus Dining. Is it also happening in the other airline/hotel RN dining programs?

Wow, and a missing dine I reported on Friday was handled faster than ever too.

I decided to print my credit card transaction activity and scan it along with the receipt (since part of the receipt didn't print well), right after submitting the missing dine info online, and before I was finished I had the email from an RN rep asking me for that. Then I sent that, and a short time later I got an email back that the miles had been added for my dine and I should see it on the dining website within 24 hours, and indeed I did see it there on Saturday (as Pending).

It used to take days for each step of this (wait from online submission to email asking for receipt / statement, then wait from emailing receipt / statement to email that the miles had been added). This time it didn't even take a full hour!

Delta is definitely posting faster as well.

Easy come, easy go?

When I switched from UA dining to DL dining, a month and a half ago, I noticed it was back to once a week. Then I switched to AS dining last week, and it's also once a week. And now I looked at UA dining, and it's even worse: a dine from 10/10 (the last one I did at UA dining) is still showing as "Pending" as of today!

And I switched to UA dining again about a month ago, and now it's back to multiple times a week.
