I asked a question Sharepoints use of the ads wwwhomepage attr about 3 hours ago. I came back to see if there was an answer. I mean come on, thats the point right? Impatience!
Anyway, I did not remember what I called the question, so I clicked on my name in the upper bar, went to my profile and list of Questions, and did not see it. So doubting myself I went to Stack Overflow in case I posted it there. No joy.
Finally searched on it here and found it. I guess I am asking how often the update to profiles runs? I know that the badge calculation takes measurable time (5 minutes or so) from experiments. (So many new Stack Exchange sites, I usually get two or three badges from each for the basic stuff, and the delay is pretty common and consistent). But I had not noticed this lag before.
Not saying it is a problem either, mostly curious what the update cycle looks like, since I used to think it was a query run each time.
