This question as been ask before here by Aleadam and answered by Marek. I am sorry I am asking again but the answer is from May.
Should data.stackexchange.com be updated more frequently?
- every week?
- every 2 weeks?
Thank you very much
Unless you're after something specialized, see if the API will suit your needs. It allows you to access the current data, albeit with some rate limits.
There's a help document for the SO version that gives more details, and there are versions that can be used for any site except StackExchange.com and Area51.
The data is always out of date - this is simply a consequence of the way the data explorer works (it queries against the data dumps rather than the live database).
Given that its always going to be out of date, what benefit is there to having the data being at most 1 week out of date (for example) as opposed to at most 1 month out of date?
