From my previous question, I learned that all tag related info on profile will be updated daily at UTC 03:00.

However, something is wrong here. It's now UTC 05:00+, but my tag number, say 93 (c++) is not updated against yesterday. I am pretty sure about this and I did earn some more points throughout the day. Sorry for not be able to capture the screenshot yesterday, but I did check this number 10 hours ago (which belongs to yesterday, also 93).

Is there a bug happening here? Or updating time different?

enter image description here

UPDATE: As of 24 Jan, the tags are still not updated with the proper values.

UPDATE2: Fixed around 25 Jan, UTC 03:00, at least for me.

  • The tags do not update from time to time but it should sort itself out the next day.

  • @Szymon Yes, probably. But still want to figure out when. Thanks. Jan 22, 2014 at 7:19

    I was thinking that too. Because it also affects a tags top users. It would be good if it displayed how fresh that information is. "Last updated X hours ago".

    @herohuyongtao - Uh oh! It looks like it's less-than-working as of mid-February. Feb 18, 2014 at 1:20

There are some database timeouts happening in the scheduled jobs that recalculate those scores starting on Jan 22 2014. This job is one of the most expensive things that are done on the site, we're trying to optimize it even further. I'll let you know when the fix will be pushed out.

  • @m0sa is there any way to see the service status ourself or does it always have to be a mod look into it?

    @Satpal I think most of us just care that they are actively investigated it.

    @m0sa: I'll let you know when the fix will be pushed out Until a fix has been found, can you remove the status-completed tag from this post? See Tag scores on user profile are not updated again - worth bringing up on meta? for a current meta question on wether you want to be poked every time the script fails. Feb 19, 2014 at 13:30
  • @m0sa It appears that this is still an issue it was reported again today Tag totals not updating

    The same problem has been happening for the last 2 or 3 days.

    @m0sa This is broken again. Tag counts haven't been updated for the last 2 days on SO, I think. It's it going to be fixed for good?

    @Szymon If you want to draw attention to an issue, please make a new post. A bounty on an old resolved post is hard for us to track and notice.
