It doesn't happen instantly. There are processing backlogs and even once it is greenlit, it can be a few days before all the relevant pages are rebuilt.

Staff will be able to check your submission though and make sure it is progressing.

They get backed up a lot because impatient people sometimes submit over and over and before they put up info, they have to go over and over the same submissions to make sure there is accuracy and lack of conflict...much like this board on which you've now posted the same question about 8 times. They also get stuck with extra tasks like either deleting or merging your three (up to this point) superfluous threads for this one question. You can always, instead of starting a new thread, just ask follow up questions within your first thread.

Time frames are usually a guess. There are 5 1/4 million people listed on IMDb, not including people like you, and sometimes many of them need "immediate" assistance. There is not telling, at the beginning of a day, now many requests for attention they'll have. There is no backlog notice for this type of edit, so it's difficult to say what the time frame is. I'd guess a matter of days, but it could be easily be a couple weeks, I'd guess.
