Please, don´t misunderstand me. If you read my orignal post the point was to say/report that the notification system isn´t working for me (as it is also for many users). Instead of having the chance to write my guest´s review right after the guest is gone, now I have to wait days until the reviewing time period is open to me. That said, I’m not so sure if this is a bug on the system or it is a change by design that they are testing in a few users out there. If this is a change by design then I agree with Airbnb that it is better to wait at least one day to let people write and send a review. The review that is left as soon as the stays ends might be more emotional than other one left after, say 3 days. However after many days and once the emotional weight is complety lost you might get a review that it is also more objetive but cold. This is better seen on negative reviews than on positive ones. If your guest has a horrible experience with you, his review might be more harmful if it is left as soon as he cross the door when his bad humor is still fresh on his skin.
After hosting more than 500 guests I have reach a point on where I have solid opinion on when is best to write a review for me but I don´t expect you or others share the some opinion. This is really up to the host and it is a pointless discussion .Some people will wait until the guest reviews first, others do it right after they gone, others at the very end of the reviewing period, others in the middle, etc. This really depends on when you think it is best suit to you with that particular guest. Neverless, I would like to say that for me the time you decide to leave a review has an effect (even a littel one) on the kind of review you get back.
