Any Chrome, any plugin

Observed behaviour

Last updated date is still old:

RuAdList+EasyList Last updated at 8:35:28 AM on 5/16/2014

Expected behaviour

Last updated today

I want lists updated daily. There is no any configuration options about list update frequency (ideally per list).

RuAdList+EasyList have an expiration time of 4 days (update frequency). We are also working on shortening filter list updates, but that requires infrastructure improvements. Nevertheless, there were more recent changes to RuAdlist than your last update date implies.

@Arthur: something I have overseen here?

No, everything looks normal to me. Although it's 4 days it might take longer for an update.

In fact, all lists are updating frequently - But not exactly as stated in their comment sections. For performance reasons, list updates are randomized and the given update interval just acts a rough estimate instead of an exact frequency. In my tests, RuAdlist always updated itself, however not always too close to the update interval of 4 days.

Comment of midenok falsely catched by spam bayes:
I have the ability to press a button 'Update now'. I can press this button every day. What I want is a feature to do it automatically with 'Force update every ... days' field. Thanks!
