Flair not updated

Combined Flair is best thing to put on website, but it isn't updated in real-time. If not updated in real-time, 5-10 minutes would be OK. But, I notice that it is intact for many hours. Please, fix it.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The current refresh rate is status-bydesign and this is not, therefore, a bug but a feature-request – ChrisF Feb 12 '12 at 12:31
@ChrisF: Hmmm, good point. Shall I leave it to a dev to decide/decline it then? – BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 12 '12 at 12:37
@BoltClock'saUnicorn - It's certainly not a bug. Up to you whether you remove the status tag though. – ChrisF Feb 12 '12 at 12:38
@Bolt well, Jeff himself changed my own "bug report" to status-bydesign so guess it's best to leave it be. :) – Shadow Wizard Feb 12 '12 at 12:42
I have requested a similar feature: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/122082/… – SS-3.1415926535897932384626433 Feb 12 '12 at 12:42

This is intended:

flair is only updated once every 24-36 hours

And I doubt it'll be changed anytime soon. I'm not a developer at Stack Exchange, but it will be quite a load of work for the servers to recalculate everybody's flair across every Stack Exchange site once every 5 to 10 minutes. All for no real, conceivable benefit that I can think of.
