As a temporary fix to the bug that caused the tracking problem a few days ago, the stats will now be updated every 30 minutes. A new way of grabbing data from the backend servers is being worked out now to permanently fix the issue, regardless of traffic. The reason that the stats broke was that there was a surge of traffic which caused the script to grab the stats to die due to excessive data being copied to the frontend server. Since the script never finished, it kept trying and trying till it was manually fixed. Having the stats update more often will fix the symptom. The actual cure will be installed in a few days.
