SEDE has been updated, but apparently the query results are being cached and thus showing old results. Example:



Note that the queries are essentially the same, but the first one shows outdated results.

    @ChrisF - I think the question relates to the data here odata.stackexchange.com – codingbadger Oct 12 '10 at 15:13

    Uh, how is it "Noise and Pointless"? And @ChrisF, Barry is right. – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 12 '10 at 15:15

    While your title does kinda cover the question, it would be helpful to use the question body to state something. Like, say, "The data-dump for September has been available for a while, but SEDE has not updated for it. When is it going to be updated?". That might counter the "Noise and Pointless". – Grace Note Oct 12 '10 at 15:19
  • Sorry - I misread the question title and as it followed on from a batch of DNS questions I assumed - always a bad thing. – ChrisF Oct 12 '10 at 15:53

    The page now says it has been updated, but queries relating to SO still return data only up to the end of August. Queries for other stackexchange sites appear to work up to Septemeber. Weird. – Ani Oct 13 '10 at 14:23
  • Perhaps the data is being loaded now? – Rebecca Chernoff Oct 13 '10 at 14:48
  • Possibly a caching issue; I can see that the data is up-to-date when I connect to the OData endpoint directly from LinqPad. – Ani Oct 13 '10 at 17:47
  • Too localized? That's an example. This problem affects all queries. – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 13 '10 at 19:56
  • @NullUserException: It's still showing the August data for me too. Does everyone else see the same? – JoseK Oct 15 '10 at 5:37

Sorry, forgot to dump the cache

    @Ladybug, Its Sunday, on Sunday I ALWAYS get waffles, no matter what :p – waffles Oct 16 '10 at 22:13
  • I think you're confused. It's Saturday, not Sunday. Why do you damn Aussies always think forward and upside-down?! >:( – Matt Ball Oct 17 '10 at 1:34
  • @Matt Ball: It is Sunday according to UTC time (as of this writing). – In silico Oct 17 '10 at 4:16
  • Still showing that the latest results are from Sep 10 for me :( – Kevin Wright Nov 12 '10 at 12:26

There was this blog post last Thursday (7th) which said the data dump should be on SE in the next few days. Although they did have a few problems with power and such so they were probably a bit busy.


The SEDE has been updated - the data is now at Sep 30 2010
