Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There was an update around the 17th or 18th. Now, I see that all of the sites have been updated as of the 25th. I know that there was a time when a weekly or every-two-week update cycle was planned, but I couldn't find any confirmation of this having been implemented.

The Data Explorer FAQ still says monthly, but there had been a delay of a few months at one point, so I'm not entirely sure that the FAQ is trustworthy on all points.

Every other post that I've found about the Data Explorer is at least a few months old, and this appears to be a recent change.

Yeah, Nick put this together the other week. The process is fully automated now, and runs on a weekly basis. The dates on the front page now also reflect the last update date of the data (instead of before, when they reflected the date of the latest content at the time of the update).

I'll make a note to update the FAQ, unless someone else wants to contribute a change before I get to it.

Yep, confirming this is the case - I get a email every Sunday morning around 5am letting me know it ran okay, if not then I'll hop on and fix far so good! – Nick Craver Nov 26 '12 at 1:04
Always nice when a plan comes together without raging fires and a sense of impending doom! – Tim Stone Nov 26 '12 at 1:12
@NickCraver, It didn't run okay. Precious data has been missing from the last few updates! :-( – Awesome Poodles Nov 26 '12 at 3:27
Just an FYI, this page still says monthly. – Aaron Bertrand May 14 '13 at 19:11
