I see 1 just popped up in the 24hr dashboard a minute ago so 8:20ish.  Oddly there still looks like there are 2 others in the P2P-Picks display right now that should be picked up. 0 % funded.
I would say that I don't know how BV works, but we aren't the only person on the platform like a personal API.  As a result, I imagine we don't get every note available due to this.  Perhaps its an incorrect assumption of mine, but that's how I've always viewed it.
So if I am on P2P-Picks in the moments it throws up the new picks and there are several on there that match my very basic criteria (and are still 0% funded) and they are still there a few minutes later, I would certainly have expected BV to identify them as matching my filters and make the LC purchases. I've seen it do a many times.  When it doesn't happen and I've reported it there has seem to be some problem (new interface, LC changing CSV format, etc).  That is why I am reporting it because there maybe something basic going wrong. 

It appears there is some resiliency checks in place to exit gracefully when something goes wrong.  There is no feedback to the users about this tho.  Example LC changing CSV header names (I think).  Therefore any BV user would have no idea why picks were not happening.  Again with P2P-Picks the filters are usually very straightforward to eyeball the P2P-Picks site directly.  This by comparison to the advanced BV filters which are hard for end users to verify.

Don't be confused about my appreciation to Nathan for BV. He knows I appreciate his efforts and have had discussions offline.  I'm reporting things so other users know in case they see similar things.  Hope that helps explain my perspective/desire/motives.

That's the beauty of this forum. It provides transparency in the business which is something I value dearly. This is YOUR money. You worked hard for it! I treat every dollar like it's in my own investment account. Everyone's feedback enables me to make a better BV.

By the end of the day there were multiple notes purchased at 4p and 8p so it appears to be chugging along nicely.  I was out and about so I don't know if that was what would be expected from the P2P-Picks list but multiple notes is a great sign.

As a brand new investor using these tools, I'm obviously watching at a detail that most old timers don't.  Very thrilled overall with BV and P2P-Picks since it automates all this!  Introducing a group of select interested friends as well.

Oh okay, I just wanted to post that because this forum (in the past, at least) has had a lot of whiners.  And they always threw fits over stuff. Just wanted to make sure this thread didn't turn into that -- I'm glad to see more level headed posters around as of late.

And I'm sure your background (according to your little profile snipit under your name) will probably be helpful in spotting things for people like Nathan.

Core, you need to tone it down here. We can disagree without using profanity or being mean. I don't appreciate it and I know others don't as well.

And yes, I consider d***s and s**t profanity.

Fair enough.  You are quite right about the langu*ge.  I apologize.  I suppose the placeholders are the same words.
